Due to unprecedented demand for Action Earth Grants we can only consider:

  • Projects in the more deprived areas of Scotland where there may be reduced local facilities and opportunities.
  • Local Nature Reserves (LNRs).
  • Projects which involve at least 35 volunteers and which make a substantial environmental impact.
  • Projects which involve groups of vulnerable people as volunteers.
