Greenwich Pride grants
Improve your local area with a Greenwich Pride grant
Got an idea on how to spruce up your local environment? Need some cash to get it going? You can apply for a grant to help get your ideas off the ground.
Grants range from £50 to £1,500 and are for one-off projects.
What kind of projects?
The criteria for applications are flexible to attract as many creative environmental ideas as possible.
Previous projects have included creating murals, launching a Neighbourhood in Bloom competition and transforming an area of derelict land into a community wildlife garden.
The grant can be used to meet the costs of capital and equipment purchase, labour, and any other costs directly associated with the project.
We will not fund ongoing works or the general running costs of an existing project.
Who can apply?
The scheme is open to Royal Greenwich residents, schools and voluntary and charitable organisations. It is also open to businesses who must financially commit to matching the requested amount of Greenwich Pride Award funding.
You may apply for further grants. However, Greenwich Pride do not fund repeat projects and you must have successfully completed the first project before reapplying.
How to apply
To apply for the Greenwich Pride grant:
- Prepare your idea. You will need a simple, clear summary of what you plan to do, who it will benefit and an estimate of what it will cost.
- Take a photo. We want to see a 'before' photo - a picture showing what it is you plan to improve. The idea is that we can collect 'before and after' pictures of all Greenwich Pride projects, taken from the same viewpoint in order to gauge progress.
Who runs the scheme?
The Greenwich Pride Awards Scheme is organised and funded by the Royal Borough.
A judging panel will meet every three to four months to assess applications.
