Funding

Community Spaces scheme

Groundwork UK has been awarded £50 million to run a grant scheme on behalf of the BIG Lottery Fund.

The new Community Spaces scheme will empower communities across England to improve public spaces in their local neighbourhoods. Community Spaces will fund a wide variety of local projects to improve green and open space. These may include play areas, community gardens, parks, wildlife areas, ponds, courts and village greens, kick-about areas and pathway improvements.

The community spaces scheme is not yet open to applications. Groundwork UK anticipate that Community spaces will be launched in Spring 2008.

Community Spaces will make grants of between £10,000 and £50,000. In addition they will make a small number of larger grants of up to £450,000

In the meantime, to be kept informed of developments on the scheme please visit their website: www.community-spaces.org.uk
