NEW: The Platinum Jubilee Fund - Deadline 15th December
Posted: Mon, 22 Nov 2021 16:23
The Platinum Jubilee Fund, through the National Lottery Community Fund will fund 70 projects across the UK.
They are looking to fund projects that create a greater legacy for our places and spaces, and that support new opportunities, activities and build better relationships with one another, across generations and with the natural world.
Grants are between £30,000 - £50,000 for up to 2 years..
Funded projects will need to be up and running on 5 June 2022.
Their three areas of focus are:
1. Across Generations - Strengthening relationships between generations and creating a legacy for future generations.
- Projects that connect people across generations through doing activities together
- Projects that consider future generations and how the Jubilee can leave a legacy for them in the community
- Projects designed and led by young people who want to be more active in shaping the future of their communities.
2. Community Renewal - Supporting new opportunities for people to develop skills and experiences in their local community, as well as opportunities to bring people together in new ways, and in new or different places and spaces.
- Projects making use of significant local sites or spaces – parks, heritage buildings, community spaces etc.
- Projects creating new opportunities for the people that live locally to contribute and/or to build skills and experiences
- Projects starting something new (a set of activities, a group, a community space, a service, a network) that marks the Jubilee as a turning point in the community.
3. Our Shared Natural World - Growing our care and action locally for the natural world.
- Projects initiating collective action in relation to the natural world locally - giving more people the opportunity to care for the planet at a local level
Across the applications, they will be looking for and prioritising projects that:
- draw on the creativity of the community
- want to do something new and inventive
- bring new opportunities
- make use of sites of local significance
- use multiple channels through which people can participate,
- that will have impact on more than one of the above areas of focus, and
- we're especially keen to see applications led by young people.
Application deadline: 15 December 2021 at 5pm or once they receive 700 applications – whichever comes first.
