30 Oct £25k funding for Essex projects which benefit the natural environment
Essex & Suffolk Water’s Branch Out scheme, which offers grants of up to £25,000 to projects which benefit the natural environment and local communities, is once again inviting funding applications from new projects.
Branch Out is designed to support projects within the Essex & Suffolk Water operating area which enhance the local environment and benefit wildlife.
Applications are welcomed from organisations, community groups and individuals from the public, private, voluntary and education sectors. The deadline for the current round of funding is 28 February 2018.
Since launching in 2013 Branch Out has awarded grants worth over £280,000 across 66 different projects. Projects can also be supported by ‘Just an Hour’, Essex & Suffolk Water’s employee volunteering programme. Earlier this year Branch Out was a finalist at the prestigious Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards, which recognise excellence and innovation in sustainability.
