About this Funding:

Supporting local communities to take action for nature

The UK is home to some of the most incredible species on Earth, but it’s also one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world. Let’s change that, together. Our £1 million Save Our Wild Isles Community Fund is here to help community groups across the UK to protect and restore nature in their local area.

Whether you’re working together to plant community gardens, support local wildlife or anything else to help nature near you, we’ll give you £500 to kick-start your project. And, to boost your fundraising, we’ll give you £2 for every £1 you raise, to help your project reach its target quicker.*

Apply now and get £500 when you go live.

Funding Criteria:

To apply for the Save Our Wild Isles Community Fund, your project needs to be focused on taking action for nature in one of the following three ways:

1. Nature restoration – activity that boosts local biodiversity, by protecting or restoring habitats, creating space for nature, connecting green spaces and/or addressing activities that directly impact biodiversity.

2. Nature connectedness and pro-environmental behaviours – action that supports greater connection to nature and promotes pro-environmental behaviours at the community level that will benefit nature.

3. Community cohesion and connection – nature positive activity that encourages collaboration in the local community, by connecting people of diverse backgrounds, generations, and abilities to nature and one another.

If that sounds like something you'd like to do, we’d love to hear from you.

With £500 available to get started, and up to £15,000 in match funding per project, it’s a great chance to make a real change.
