The Community Fund are offering from £1,000 to £10,000 of National Lottery funding 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:

  • food

  • transport

  • energy

  • waste and consumption

  • the natural environment.

You do not need to be an expert in any of these areas to apply. We’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, we 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.

Together for Our Planet information sessions

To help answer any questions groups may have about the Together for Our Planet funding programme, including the criteria and what we are hoping to fund, we will be holding two information webinars. To attend a webinar, please sign up ahead of the event.
