Funding has been made available from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to enable a small grants fund to be created by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk to help transform outdoor community spaces in the Borough, and encourage greater use by local people.

Grants of up to £750 are available to support community projects that meet the following outcomes:

  • Increased involvement from people who face barriers to participation in community life
  • Healthier and safer lifestyles
  • Greater use of community outdoor spaces

The spaces where projects take place must be accessible to the public.   Activities that can be considered may include:

  • Promoting biodiversity, or creating wildlife habitats
  • Provision, conservation or restoration of a natural habitat
  • Inspiring young people through nature
  • Community growing projects or nature trails

Priority will be given to smaller community groups and charities where a small grant will make a significant difference.

The fund cannot support:

  • Clean ups/ litter picks
  • One off events such as fetes and open gardens events
  • Activities held on privately owned land or where access by the general public is restricted
