Ahead of #COP26, The National Lottery Community Fund have launched a new funding programme, #TogetherforOurPlanet, to support communities across the UK taking action on Climate Change.
Together for Our Planet is now opened to applications for our new small grants programme.
This new £2.5million National Lottery-funded programme will support communities across the UK take action on climate change, ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), in Glasgow this November.
As a reminder this programme is offering grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 to support local community projects. It aims to create a legacy of ongoing climate action in hundreds of communities, beyond COP26, supporting the UK to reduce its emissions on its part to Net Zero by 2050.
Although the fund will be open for all, groups that haven’t received our funding previously will be a priority and the National Lottery is also focusing on groups and communities who are starting to take climate action and/or those more likely to be directly impacted by climate change.
The programme is open for applications from today, 1 September, until 5pm on Thursday 18 November.
