Exciting new Climate Action Fund opening on the 27th March 2024

The Climate Action Fund is supporting communities across the UK to take action on climate change.

We want to involve more people in climate action. And we want to inspire bold and exciting change.

From Wednesday 27 March 2024 you can apply for funding from the Climate Action Fund to help do this.

We’ll fund projects that reach more people by either:

  • linking climate action to the everyday lives and interests of local communities. And inspiring them to take action.

  • influencing communities at a regional or national level. Like linking up groups across locations. Or a campaign that inspires change across one country, or the whole UK.

You should be in a partnership with

  • a mix of organisations and sectors

  • smaller groups that represent the people you’re working with.

You do not have to be a climate or environment-focused organisation to apply

We want to reach people who are new to climate action by funding other types of organisations too. And by using people's everyday activities and interests as a starting point for climate action.

For example, your project might:

  • involve people who have not had a say. For example because they are new to climate action. Or because they come from communities that experience poverty, disadvantage and discrimination

  • introduce a climate perspective to a group who came together around another interest or activity

  • test the best ways to engage different audiences in climate action

  • spread an exciting local approach to climate action by sharing it nationally.

The minimum you can ask for is £500,000. We expect to fund most projects for between £1 million and £1.5 million over 3 to 5 years. We may fund some exceptional projects up to £3 million, and for up to 7 years. We aim to fund up to 25 projects.
