    This item will show under the following categories: Climate/Environment  

    The Neighbourhood Ecosystem Fund seeks to inspire, encourage, and enable communities to explore and deliver ambitious ecosystem restoration projects locally. It also seeks to raise awareness about the importance of local ecosystem restoration and address barriers faced by community-led efforts.

    They are most interested in funding the development stages and successful organisations will also receive professional fundraising support to move their projects from development stage to delivery.

    Your project must focus on one (or more) parts of ecosystem restoration. These are:

    • Connecting nature corridors
    • Habitat and species restoration
    • Freshwater and wetland restoration
    • Coastal and marine initiatives
    • Control of invasive non-native species impacting on nature
    • Enhancing and connecting nature within villages, towns, or cities

    This Fund is supported by the Carman Family Foundation, the Scottish Government’s Nature Restoration Fund, which is managed by NatureScot, and others. Inspiring Scotland is administering this funding.

    Who can apply

    To apply for this funding, you must be a not-for-profit community-led organisation based in a specific geographic area in Scotland.

    Maximum annual income: £200,000

    How to apply

    Read the fund guidance available on the Inspiring Scotland website and then submit an expression of interest. You will then have access to the online application form.

    The closing date for applications is 11.59am on Wednesday 03 July 2024.
