This year’s CSGN Community Projects Fund is now open. Groups can apply for grants of between £1,500 and £3,000.
This year we want to focus on projects undertaken for the benefit of, and/or involving children and young people under 16 years of age.
The Fund is intended to support small-scale, community led projects that:
• Deliver green network improvements on the ground; and/or
• Increase community use of the green network; and/or
• Increase community involvement in the maintenance and enhancement of the green network.
Projects must be either for the benefit of children and young people and/or undertaken with and by children and young people.
Funding is available for financial year 2013-14 and therefore activity must be complete by 31 March 2014.
The Fund is available to community groups able to demonstrate that they represent a community within the CSGN area, how their project will be undertaken with or will benefit children and young people, and that they have the necessary permissions and any match funding.
The scope of the Fund is deliberately broad – although we are particularly keen to support projects that include tree/woodland planting or management.
We will consider all types of project activity that can be shown to be enhancing the green network locally or increasing use and involvement by children and young people.
