Big Local ‘Our Environment’ Grant

‘Our Environment’ grants are currently available for not-for profit, voluntary and community groups, social enterprises and statutory agencies to deliver environmental projects in the Grace Mary to Lion Farm area.

Grants are for projects up to £1,000.

Grants are available for Environmental Projects which must demonstrate that they meet at least one of the following outcomes:

  1. There are more wildlife and/or sensory areas with easy access
  2. There are more people taking further pride in the area
  3. There are more safe spaces (park, play, allotments etc.)
  4. There are more areas of natural beauty

Funding can be used for either capital expenditure (e.g. equipment, furniture, materials, etc) or revenue costs (e.g. staff wages, venue hire costs and utilities costs). Funding can also be used for expanding existing activities or developing new activities that enhance the quality of resident’s lives in the Big Local area.
