The Climate Action Fund
The Climate Action Fund at the National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF) aims to reduce the carbon footprint of communities. The fund is now open for an initial round of funding applications. In this initial round, NLCF will support up to 15 place-based community-led partnerships to make the changes in their community they believe will have the biggest impact on climate change.
- The amount of funding available per application will depend on what each partnership needs at this stage:
- Applicants who need more time to develop their partnership, engage widely or test their approaches can access initial development funding (up to £200,000 over 18 months)
- Applicants who might be able to start longer-term plans at an earlier stage can access larger, longer-term awards (up to £2.5m over five years)
- Successful applicants will have experience in implementing meaningful action on climate change
- NLCF expect to fund a mix of different places, communities, themes and initiatives, across the UK
- NLCF will use learning from the first round of funding to help shape what happens next and we will test and learn throughout the programme. Further rounds of funding will be available at a later stage.
The deadline for the first round of funding is 18th December 2019.
Full details are available on the NLCF website.
Youth Music are a national charity investing in music-making projects for children and young people (aged 0-25) experiencing challenging circumstances.
Youth Music's vision is that one day, all children and young people can make music. In order to achieve this, they’re working collaboratively to transform music education in England.
They have five priority funding areas: Early Years, SEN/D, NEET, Youth Justice and Coldspots.
Youth Music takes an outcomes approach. Projects they invest in support the musical, personal and social development of children and young people, and they also support positive outcomes for organisations and their workforce.
Fund A awards smaller grants (between £2,000 and £30,000) for high-quality projects, with grant duration between 6 to 24 months.
Next application deadline is 6 December 2019, 5pm.
