To achieve environmental goals by running successful and sustainable clean-up campaigns, we unquestionably need the appropriate funding to make it all happen.

There are many funding routes already available, and new grants are frequently released. You will find that even though there are various funding titles and sources - through charitable trusts, lottery or local government for example - many can be applicable to clean-up campaigns. Good news for everyone!

It’s knowing where to find such grants, as well as how to apply for them, that can be the tricky part – and that’s where we come in!
