Climate Action Fund 2022/2023

Round 2 for this fund will be opening mid October 2022.

Round 1 is closed for applications to our £50,000 Climate Action Fund 2022/2023.

You don’t have to be a climate expert or established group to apply. We’re just as keen to hear from communities who are starting their journey to take action to address the climate emergency.

How much is available and what for?

Our Climate Action Fund has grants from £250 to £5,000 on offer per project to help tackle climate change, with a total of £50,000 available.

What projects can the fund support?

The funding is aimed at projects that help to tackle climate change and increase people’s awareness and knowledge of the climate emergency.  The work could focus on areas such as the natural environment, energy, waste and consumption, or transport and travel. We’ve put together a list of useful resources and ideas to help you get started.

Organisations that receive funding will also have the opportunity to network with other grant recipients to share experiences and potentially collaborate on future projects.

Who can apply

We would like to hear from non-profit community organisations whose primary purpose is to benefit the residents of Vale of White Horse. Town and parish councils may apply themselves, or can collaborate with local unconstituted groups to apply on their behalf.

Vale of White Horse Climate Action Plan 2022-2024

Tackling the climate emergency is one of our biggest priorities.  The Climate Action Fund is part of our new 2022-2024 Climate Action Plan which outlines the steps the Vale will take to become a carbon neutral council by 2030, alongside how we will support local efforts to reduce emissions.

For more information, see our climate action pages.   

Equalities

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and welcomes applications from organisations representing minority or vulnerable groups. We encourage all applicants to make their projects as inclusive and accessible to all as possible.
