Sow the seeds of change

If you’ve got an idea for a project that will help your community take action on climate change, we can help you get it up and running.

Our FEL Climate Hub, funded by Scottish Government, is offering seed grants of between £250 and £1,500 to community organisations whose projects have one or more of the following aims:

  • Making your community more aware of climate change and its effects
  • Building climate-focused partnerships between community groups
  • Helping your community come up with new ways of taking action on climate change
  • Giving local people a stronger voice in calling for climate action
  • Supporting your community in creating a fairer, more sustainable future

We’re open to applications from community councils, trusts, organisations and groups, as well as charities and Community Interest Companies in the Forth Valley or the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park area (excluding Argyll).

We cannot accept applications for the Seed Grants directly from schools. We would advise working with a community group, or getting in touch for more information.

You can apply online any time between 17 November 2023 and 10 February 2024. All funding must be used by 31 March 2024.

If you’ve got an idea, but you’re not sure where it fits or how to get started, come and have a chat. We can show you what’s possible and help you figure out what works best for you.

Then we can work together to make positive change happen – project by project.

Email emily@felscotland.org to arrange a chat or see our application guide for more information.

Application is via an online form, or if preferred get in touch with Emily  to request a word doc version.

We also have guidance on what we’re looking for and what’s likely to be successful. Open this here and take a look before getting in touch with any questions.

Finally, here is a short run-down on what you’ll be asked in the form.

If you’re ready to apply, head straight to the form now.
