We’re proud of the fact that the total value of projects we’ve instigated or supported since we were formed in 2005 exceeds £150,000. That’s a big investment in the environment of our Valley.
But then facilitating projects is one of our prime purposes, and this can happen in several ways.
Each year we agree a number of projects we would like to develop, and if finance is needed we will seek grants for these.
We also encourage other groups to approach us to help with their own projects. For smaller sums we can provide a grant to cover all or part of their costs, and we are always pleased to provide the match funding that releases a much larger sum from the main grant source.
If we cannot provide all the finance needed we can sometimes use our expertise and charitable status to take the lead role in fundraising eg. as we are a registered ‘Environmental Body’ we can apply for funds derived from Landfill Tax, and in this way we can act on behalf of our affiliated groups in the Valley.
If you have a project you think we may be able to help with, however big or small, we would love to hear from you. Please use the contact form and select category Project Assistance
