Sea-Changers, the marine conservation charity has launched a new fund, the Marine Conservation Social Fund.

The new Social Fund has a unique emphasis on supporting or enhancing participants’ health and well-being and / or delivering benefits for disadvantaged communities, through marine conservation activity.

They are particularly interested in funding pilot programmes that, following careful evaluation, might be continued, expanded and / or replicated with additional funding in future years.

Grant requests should be in the region of £3,000 - £4,000 and are welcomed from a wide range of organisations including charities and ‘not-for-profit’ organisations and community groups. Sea-Changers encourage applications for projects that may be formed through partnerships between marine conservation organisations and social welfare organisations and are particularly interested in grassroots projects that galvanise community action and in projects that increase the number of people taking action for marine conservation.

The closing date for applications is 31st October 2021. For full details, and to apply, visit the Sea-Changers website.
