Nature project grants

NATURE projects could be eligible for financial help under a new grants system.

Scottish Natural Heritage launched an online service earlier this month open to organisations and community groups running projects to do with managing wildlife and helping people engage with nature.

SNH’s operations director Andrew Bachell said: “We’re keen to back projects that are innovative, targeted at key groups, such as young people, people with poor health and on low incomes, and which address barriers to participation.”

The deadline for applications is November 30. For more information see www.snh.gov.uk/funding/our-grants/
