The Postcode Local Trust is offering grants, ranging from £500 to £20,000, to help communities enhance their natural environment in a way that benefits the wider community.

Funding is available for good causes which benefit wildlife, enhance biodiversity, or renovate/create new green habitats. Consideration will also be given to sustainable energy projects benefitting local areas. Funding will be available for activities, such as:

  • creation of community gardens which benefit local areas
  • habitat restoration projects which benefit biodiversity and which provide lasting benefits to a community such as on-going recreation activities, flood prevention schemes, natural hedgerow boundaries
  • tree planting or creation of community orchard projects
  • wildflower meadow creation
  • projects which create bird, bug and beastie homes
  • outdoor education projects delivered with local communities by environmental charities
  • green-energy projects
  • micro-hydro schemes benefiting a local community
