Our Branch Out fund helps to deliver projects that benefits the natural environment and their local communities. Branch Out aims to help our regions build resilience, and adapt to the changing climate while bringing benefits to water, wildlife and communities.
The fund is open to organisations, community groups or individuals from the public, private, voluntary and education sectors who have projects that can make a difference to the wildlife and communities in the areas in which we operate.
The deadline for our next round of grants is 28 February 2016. An application form and terms and conditions can be found at https://www.nwl.co.uk/your-home/environment/branch-out.aspx.
In the last year we have supported 14 projects with grants totalling over £58,000.
