Applications are invited from registered charities and not-for-profit organisations for projects that help disabled or disadvantaged young people connect with nature and the countryside.

The funding supports projects that improve the physical and mental health and well-being of disabled and disadvantaged young people by helping them visit and participate in recreational and educational opportunities in the countryside.

A wide range of organisations providing activities engaging with young people and communities will be supported, such as:

• Farms providing day or residential experiences for disabled and disadvantaged
young people,
• Growing projects, including horticultural therapy and community projects supporting people through outdoor activities and gardening,
• Forest school-type activities, giving people the opportunity to utilise their outdoor spaces for the benefit of their mental and physical wellbeing,
• Conservation and environmental projects, giving people the chance to learn about the natural environment and how to care for it.

Applications are particularly welcome for projects for children and young people who are disadvantaged financially, physically, mentally, or from areas of deprivation.

Grants of up to £10,000 will be awarded to support projects, capital works, and running costs.

Expressions of interest should be submitted in the first instance. Successful organisations will be invited to submit a full application.
