£8.8 million to transform your community

January 11, 2016

We’ve launched our brand new Create Your Space environmental programme which will use £8.8 million to transform local natural environments in Wales.

It is a joint investment between the Big Lottery Fund and Dormant Accounts money to enable communities to make positive and sustainable transformations to their local natural environment.  And it will support communities to come up with their own vision and plan, for conserving or improving their local natural environment in a way which meets their needs and those of future generations.

Create Your Space is targeting nine local authorities in Wales including: Caerphilly, Conwy, Flintshire, Isle of Anglesey, Newport, Monmouthshire, Rhondda Cynon Taff, Vale of Glamorgan and Wrexham. Third-sector bodies and communities will be able to apply for grants between £500,000 and £2 million for a seven-year project.

The programme is open for applications. For further information about how you can apply, please visit www.biglotteryfund.org.uk/createyourspace call 0300 123 0735, textphone 0845 6021 659 or email enquiries.wales@biglotteryfund.org.uk
