New: National Forest Society Grants

New: National Forest Society Grants

The National Forest is looking for new ways to support the health and wellbeing of those who live in the National Forest and are pleased to announce a new grant scheme to fund work to achieve this.

Projects supported by the Forest Society grant scheme will encourage new and diverse audiences to get involved with Forest activities, increase participation overall, and will use local woodlands to harness the wellbeing benefits of spending times outdoors and connecting to nature.

We are inviting applicants to come forward with new and innovative ideas for projects that take inspiration from the National Forest and will improve health and wellbeing and encourage participation, particularly amongst communities that may have been harder hit by Covid-19.

Eligible organisations include, but are not limited to:

  • Voluntary groups
  • Businesses
  • Community groups
  • Creative organisations
  • Artists
  • Facilitators
  • Charities
  • Social enterprises
  • CICs

Please do feel free to pass this email on to others who may be eligible to apply for the grant scheme.

The scheme is open now and the deadline for submission for applications is Tuesday 29 June. Further information and application forms are available here on the National Forest website.

If you require further information or an informal discussion about a project idea, please contact Hollie Davison at or call 07816364775.
