Communities for Tomorrow
Are you working to reduce energy consumption, tackle climate change, boost recycling or create a nature reserve? Do you have ideas to make your community more sustainable? Are you encouraging wildlife back into your neighbourhood? If so, you could qualify for a grant from our Communities for Tomorrow programme.
Grants between £2,500 and £25,000 per year for up to two years are awarded for groups including charities, voluntary groups, schools, colleges, local authorities and Community Interest Companies. Your work must be planned for Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Richmond, Runnymede, Slough, South Bucks, Spelthorne or Windsor and Maidenhead. To apply, your group must have a constitution and a bank account that needs two signatures.
