Get Ready for Autumn with an Action Earth Grant

 Are you planning an environmental activity using volunteers? Can you come up with a project that improves your local area? Do you want to get your community working together?  Then you could be eligible for a CSV Action Earth grant and the time to apply is NOW!

The CSV Action Earth campaign runs until the end of November, supported by SNH (Scottish Natural Heritage). The campaign offers up to £500 to cover plants, materials, tools and expenses and can make a big difference.

1. CSV Action Earth Awards are grants of £250 for projects providing or improving habitats for wildlife, enhancing local nature spots and getting communities volunteering together. 

2. CSV Local Nature Reserve Awards of up to £500 are available exclusively for projects taking place on Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) which involve volunteers. Activities can include practical work, celebration days, educational events and wildlife recording.

Last year, CSV Action Earth volunteers were involved in tasks such as improving woodlands by planting and clearing, turning derelict wasteland into bee-friendly wildflower meadows, creating ponds and footpaths, building bird and bat boxes, tagging sharks and a whole range of other environmental activities.  We are keen to help projects, communities and groups attract new volunteers to their work.

Grants are allocated on a first come first serve basis, so please register quickly to avoid disappointment. You can apply online, download forms or get more information at
