Volunteering Matters Action Earth 2020 grants

Applications for Volunteering Matters Action Earth 2020 are now open, in the hope that they can help support you to rebuild slowly, steadily and safely while carrying out all the essential environmental work that you do which benefits local communities across Scotland.
Any group of 15 or more volunteers can apply for our £250 awards to help make a difference outdoors in their local green spaces. They also have a very limited number of £500 grants for projects which primarily involve people with defined health conditions (outlined on our website).
Successful applicants will be expected to observe any current or developing guidelines and recommendations around Covid-19, and put the safety of their volunteers and staff first. You should only apply for our grants once you feel certain you can carry out your activities according to Scottish Government guidance.
They recommend starting small, planning your event by breaking activities into smaller manageable groups and tasks and where possible spreading activities over a longer timescale. This will aid with distancing measures and tool-sharing practicalities. To help further, they are extending the campaign to February 2021, which will assist groups who are looking to carry out later activities such as winter tree planting.
Action Earth grant funding is provided by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH)
