  • Volunteering Matters - Action Earth Awards

    Created: 25/03/2020

    Awards from £50 to £250 are available to groups of volunteers carrying out environmental activities. This could include improving ponds, woodlands, meadows and other green spaces to make them more wildlife friendly. Create new habitats by planting nectar-rich flowers, fruit-bearing trees or shrubs. Action Earth Enhanced Grants up to £500 are available for projects which can demonstrate a significant health impact through working with people who have defined health or social needs.

    They prioritise applications from volunteer groups who: work in areas where there is substantial social or economic deprivation; improve and develop the health and wellbeing of their local community; involve disabled people, vulnerable people or those at risk of exclusion; encourage and involve people under 26 in practical outdoor conservation.
