Registered charities, not-for-profit organisations, schools, local authorities and social housing providers across the UK can apply for grants of up to £2,500 for projects which benefit local communities and the environment. The Bupa Foundation Green Community Grants programme will fund practical projects which benefit both people and planet health, with priority given to regeneration of green spaces for community use. The funding is delivered in partnership with Groundwork as part of Bupa’s #HealthyCities campaign. The closing date for applications is the 30th June 2023.
Priority will be given to the regeneration of green spaces for community use, however other examples include:
- Improving green spaces for community activities to improve wellbeing
- Tree planting to improve air quality and biodiversity
- A school wanting to create an outdoor classroom or forest school
- A community group who’d like to create an allotment
- A voluntary organisation wanting to install sustainable equipment, such as a heat pump
This is not an exhaustive list and other project ideas are welcomed.
Bupa Foundation Green Community Grants can fund up to 100% of your project costs, so you do not need to have any match funding. However, if you secure additional funding, there is no limit to what this amount can be and any funding awarded by Bupa Foundation can form part of your wider project costs.
Grants can be awarded to schools, registered charities, not-for-profit organisations, local authorities and social housing provider. Applications are not eligible from:
- Community Interest Companies with shares (CIC’s)
- Community Interest Companies with guarantee that are less than two years old
- Profit-making organisations
The deadline for applications is Friday 30 June 2023.
