The National Lottery Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund is offering from £1,000 to £10,000 to support communities across the UK to take action on climate change.
Projects should reflect what matters to your community and can be small in scale. They could cover an area like:
- waste and consumption
- the natural environment.
You do not need to be an expert in any of these areas to apply. They’re particularly interested to hear from people starting to think about taking action on climate change in their communities.
In November 2021, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow. The UK Government’s Together for Our Planet initiative has been created to engage people with COP26 and inspire positive climate action. National Lottery funding will support this by helping communities to take action on climate change.
Building on interest and excitement for this international conference, they hope to nurture and develop local ideas through this funding, supporting a legacy of ongoing climate action projects in hundreds of communities across the UK.
You can apply if you have a current grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, but the project should not duplicate work they’re already funding you to do. However, you do not have to have received funding before, and they're particularly keen to support groups who have not received funding before.
