Some information about Groundwork’s Our Space Award
Our Space Award
The Our Space Award is a grant scheme that aims to help Londoners green their city through active community engagement and participation. It will support Londoners of all ages and backgrounds, communities and schools in improving community open spaces, making them inclusive places for all to enjoy.
Who do we help?
We help community groups of three or more people who meet regularly. Your group does not have to be formally arranged or constituted, but it does need to put energy and enthusiasm into your project, and your group needs to be based in London. We support improvement projects across all types of open space – in parks, on housing estates, in town centres, in woodlands and in school grounds.
What support is available?
We offer three tiers of grants going from £500 all the way up to £5,000:
- Small grants of £500 up to £1,000;
- Standard grants of £1,000 up to £3,000; and
- Flagship grants of £3,000 to £5,000.
When should my project take place?
We expect to inform applicants to the first round that they have been successful in June, with project activities to be completed in September, when monitoring information will be due.
How to apply
Applications are now open. The deadline for this round is 30 April 2018.
