Apply for grants to make your area greener
Grants of between £500 and £1,000 are on offer to community groups, charities and voluntary organisations to help make neighbourhoods more environmentally friendly.
Applications are invited to support initiatives which will reduce carbon emissions, improve resilience to climate change, reduce waste, benefit the natural environment or raise awareness about environmental issues.
"By making these grants available, we aim to empower more local people to take action to protect the environment and increase resilience to climate change," says Cllr Andy Stafford, Chair of Worcester City Council's Environment Committee.
"Suggestions put forward don't have to be complicated or original –but they do need to clearly demonstrate the difference the action will make within their community."
Worcester City Council has allocated £20,000 to support the environmental community grants scheme.Groups can apply for up to two grants for separate initiatives between now and the end of March.
