In October, Warwickshire County Council Cabinet approved the creation of a community fund to help address climate change. This will support initiatives from the voluntary and community sector, parish and town councils, schools and other organisations to deliver local climate change projects.
Warwickshire County Council is seeking the views of groups or individuals to help shape how the grant fund will operate. You are invited to complete an online questionnaire to share your views on the types of projects that could be funded, the levels of financial support required and the process for applying for funding.
The survey will be open from Monday 16th November and will close on Sunday 29th November.
What is the Warwickshire Green Shoots Fund?
Warwickshire County Council has approved the creation of a new £1 million community fund to help address the climate change emergency. This new fund will support initiatives to deliver local climate change projects which reduce our carbon emissions and lessen our impact on our environment. The key focus for the fund is to enable Warwickshire communities to deliver their own local solutions.
Any community group or voluntary organisation – including schools, parish and town councils – can apply for money from the fund.
