Funding for Nature and Natural History Projects Across the UK

Registered charities across the United Kingdom can apply for funding to deliver natural history and wildlife conservation and restoration projects.

John Spedan Lewis Foundation is offering grants of between £2,000 and £30,000 for registered charities with an annual income of less than £1 million to deliver natural history and wildlife projects and activities that fall within the following themes:

  • Research.
  • Habitat conservation.
  • Habitat restoration and rewilding.
  • Environment education.
  • Community action and engagement in nature.

Support for more general operational costs will also be considered if groups can provide evidence that:

  • The funding will make a substantial difference to the capabilities of the organisation to deliver on its strategy (with a clear rationale for this).
  • The funded organisation’s purpose and impact reflect a key strategic focus area for JSLF funding.
  • The organisation is effective in its work and well managed.

Funding is for groups for which natural history topics are explicitly stated among their charitable purposes, including wildlife conservation, entomology, and ornithology.

The deadline for applications is 31 July 2023.
