Leeds Parks Fund
Grant size: £500 to £2,500
Leeds Parks Fund
Good quality parks and other public green spaces are essential for making cities great places to visit, work and live in. The many benefits of parks include improving health and wellbeing, providing places for children to play and homes for wildlife, bringing communities together and beautifying the city. They also make a positive contribution to the environment by helping to keep the air clean and mitigating the growing impact of climate change.
The Leeds Parks Fund is a partnership involving Leeds Community Foundation, Leeds Parks and Green Spaces Forum and Leeds City Council and is made possible through the generous support of our donors. Thanks to a range of charitable donations from businesses and members of the public, we are delighted to launch the first round of grants to enhance parks and green spaces across the city. We are seeking applications from community groups who have ideas about how to improve and transform their local green spaces for the benefit of local people, wildlife and the environment.
This round is focused on the environment. As a result, we are particularly keen that applications should demonstrate at least one of the following:
- Benefit to local environment
- Improved access to natural environment
- Increased use of natural environment
- Education about the environment
This programme is currently closed for applications.
