An annual grants scheme that sees over £80,000 awarded to community projects across Essex and Suffolk has opened for applications.
Every year, the Suffolk & Essex Coast & Heaths National Landscape hands out more than £80,000 in grants to individuals, organisations such as schools and wildlife conservationists, and community groups to fund projects that help to conserve and enhance the special landscape.
The Suffolk & Essex Coast & Heaths National Landscape, stretches from Kessingland in North Suffolk, down to the River Stour Estuary in North Essex, and is protected for its national importance and natural beauty.
There are four grant funds open for applications, each offering different levels of funding for varying purposes. Applications are welcomed from projects that represent the widest range of society possible and the funds support equality of opportunities to access grants.
Previous examples of projects funded include wildlife areas in primary schools, photography workshops for people with mental illness, installing accessible paths, woodland regeneration, and improving visitor experiences at well-known and beloved landmarks and nature reserves in the area.
Whether you have a project that covers topics such as wildlife conservation, access and diversity, climate change, health and wellbeing, learning, the Suffolk & Essex Coast & Heaths National Landscape welcomes your application.
