  • The Climate Action Fund - Supporting Communities to take Action on Climate change

    Created: 01/03/2021

    The Climate Action Fund (CAF) is supporting communities across the UK to take action on climate change. These communities will demonstrate what’s possible when people lead in this work. With National Lottery funding, they will work together, share their learning and be active participants in a broader movement of change.

    The Climate Action Fund round two is open and is offering two types of funding in this round - development funding up to £150,000, and full awards up to £1.5 million. They expect to make 12 to 15 awards in total in this round, and to award more development grants than full awards. #ClimateFundUK


    Who can apply?

    The Climate Action Fund will fund medium to large scale projects addressing waste and consumption. Looking to support place-based, community-led partnerships that will make the changes in their community they believe will have the biggest impact on climate change.  

    They are looking to invest in community-led partnerships that are made up of a mix of organisations from different sectors. But the lead applicant should be a community-based organisation (e.g. voluntary sector organisation, social enterprise, school – see website for a full list).


    More information and application.
