Nature for Health Grants

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

The Peoples Health Trust has launched a new Nature for Health grants programme.  The programme is aimed at supporting local community initiatives that promote health and wellbeing through nature-based activities.

Eligible organisations can apply for grants of £20,000 to £40,000 for activities lasting 2 years.

Applicants are asked to secure match funding of at least 25% of the grant value.

Funded activity should focus on working with people who are experiencing mental health problems (for example anxiety, panic attacks, depression, loneliness) and:

  • Are experiencing socio-economic disadvantage;
  • Are experiencing marginalisation and discrimination (for example, people from racialised communities, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, excluded young people and those struggling to attend school (aged 11-18)
  • Or are otherwise less likely to access support (for example, men of all ages).

The fund will close on Wednesday 20 March at 1pm.
