Tideway is continuing its support to community greening projects across the capital until February 2024 following the success of the programme throughout 2022.
In February, Tideway supported 27 community groups pitching ‘clean and green’ initiatives to help Londoners improve their local community.
The successful applicants ranged from a gardening club in Hammersmith teaching those with learning disabilities, to an eco-garden providing beautiful new green space to schools in Lewisham.
So far, the projects have helped improve 11,000m2 of land in London with the help of nearly 400 volunteers and more than 1,800 participants.
Such was the success of this programme, Tideway has extended this support and is now calling for applicants for the next round of funding.
The ‘Our Space Awards’ are supported by Tideway and a number of other partners, and are administered and delivered by Groundwork London, a federation of charities mobilising practical community action to improve the environment and tackle poverty across the UK.
Kelly Bradley, Community Investment Manager, said: “We’re delighted to be able to continue our support for local communities in London through the Our Space Award funding.
“The success of the programme this year has been amazing to see, and we’re really looking forward to seeing new applicants wanting to improve their local communities.”
Applicants from the 14 London boroughs can apply for funding from today (October 31st) with winning entries expected to deliver a range of benefits: tree planting (it is hoped that each project can plant at least one tree); climate resilience; improvements to water quality and drainage through planting and reducing hard surfaces; improved ecology and biodiversity; and climate education.
More details of the fund and how local groups can apply can be found on the Groundwork London website.
