Support for Youth-Focused Climate Events Across the UK for Great Big Green Week 2023

Charities, voluntary and community groups, and other not-for-profit organisations across the UK can apply for funding to deliver child and youth-focused local events, activities, and festivals as part of the Green Big Green Week 2023 (10 to 18 June).

Save the Children is offering grants of between £300 and £800 for not-for-profit organisations across the UK to support activities and events taking place as part of the Great Big Green Week 2023 (10 to 18 June) that engage young people and children to raise awareness of the impacts of the climate crisis and its effects on children and young people.

Projects and events that engage a diverse range of young people and families are strongly encouraged, particularly from groups that work with or support children and young people who:

  • Are from families on low incomes.
  • Have migrated to the UK.
  • Are from racialised communities.
  • Have experience in the care system.
  • Are LGBT+ or from an LGBT+ family.
  • Are disabled or live with someone who is disabled.

Priority will be given to activities that support local groups to create new connections that support people, organisations, and MPs to take climate action locally, ideally taking place in the week leading up to, during, and/or the week after Green Big Green Week 2023 (10 to 18 June).

Funding can be used for project and event delivery costs, such as equipment, venue hire, refreshments, attendance or license fees, transport, utilities, volunteer expenses, and publicity costs.

The deadline for applications is 13 April 2023.
