BVCT Relaunch the 2021 Small Grant Scheme


Small grants helping you kickstart your project

We love the Blackwater Valley.

It’s our mission to protect our wildlife habitat, enhance our environment and provide a great place for the public to enjoy.

Many groups and organisations along our 22-mile valley share our dreams and goal. Full of great ideas on how to improve their local area, often they just need a little help to get started.

To help kickstart your project, we have introduced a small grants scheme to fund projects for like-minded organisations or groups in the Blackwater Valley.

Together we can achieve more, faster.

Examples of projects we may fund:

  • to provide equipment for groups to use for working on local nature areas
  • to improve access to recreational facilities and the countryside;
  • to create new wildlife habitats and species recording;
  • to provide signage/information about our natural environment; and
  • offering educational opportunities to the public
