Up to £5000 grant available for open spaces

April 24, 2012

The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge (UK) The Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge is a new campaign supported by the SITA Trust, HRC Prince William and the Fields Trust. The Challenge aims to protect 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities such as pitches, woodlands, children’s play areas, gardens, bicycle trails, parks etc, all across the country as a permanent living legacy of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee which will be in 2012. Local Authorities, Parish and Town Councils, sports clubs and other private landowners can apply to obtain Queen Elizabeth II Field status. All those areas that are designated a Queen Elizabeth II Field, will then be able to apply through SITA’s £1 million Queen Elizabeth II Fields Fund, for grants to make improvements to the recreation area. Through this fund there will be two different strands these are: The QEII Fields Volunteer Support Fund, which will make grants of up to £5,000 to fund those projects where volunteers are extensively involved in the delivery of the project. The QEII Major Works Fund, which will make grants of up to £25,000 to support those projects that also focus on delivery by volunteers, but will allow major works to be carried out by contractors. The next deadlines for applications for the QEII Fields Volunteer Support Fund is the 18th June 2012 and the QEII Major Works Fund is the 23rd July 2012. http://www.sitatrust.org.uk/qe2-fields
