The new funding will provide up to 25 grants of between £500,000 and £1.5 million (over three to five years) for projects that involve more people in climate action in the UK and inspire ‘bold and exciting change’. Some exceptional projects of up to £3 million, for up to seven years, may be funded.

The funding is for partnership projects that reach more people by either:

  • Linking climate action to the everyday lives and interests of local communities and inspiring them to take action.
  • Influencing work with communities at a regional or national level, for example by linking up groups across locations, or a campaign that inspires change across one country, or the whole UK

NLCF will be holding three information sessions:

  • 27 March 2024 (13:00 to 14:00) (including British Sign Language).
  • 16 May 2024 (11:00 to 12 noon) (Welsh and English).
  • 21 May 2024 (14:00 to 15:00).

Advanced registration is required and can be done on the NLCF website.

A session recording will be uploaded to the Climate Action Fund webpage after the sessions.
