Strategy for Nature Fund

SfN Fund

Share this page

The Strategy for Nature Fund is managed by Agriculture, Countryside & Land Management Services in order to offer financial support for environmental initiatives which aim to further the goals and objectives of the Strategy for Nature.

The Fund, developed for individuals, educational facilities and charity organisations wishing to engage in projects that benefit the environment and local community, is donating a total of £40,000 in 2021 by way of grants to projects that are aligned with the goals of the Strategy for Nature:

The Fund is in recognition that the Strategy for Nature is not simply a government document; it is a framework for the whole community and it will require support and action from the whole community in order to achieve its goals and objectives.

Of the total donation, up to £9,000 will be dedicated specifically to a bursary for students completing graduate or post graduate degrees in a relevant subject with a commitment to carry out data collection for their research project on-island. This bursary will be shared between up to three students (e.g. 3 x £3,000 grants).

The remaining £31,000 forms the bulk of the Fund and is open to local charities, education facilities and the general public, for projects based in Guernsey or Herm* which meet at least one of the objectives of the Strategy for Nature. Again, this amount will be split between projects; an amount up to £5,000 can be applied for at one time, whether it is for the full cost of the project, or as part of the costs.

To submit an application for the Fund, or specifically the bursary, please read and fill out the corresponding guidance document and application form found in the downloads section of this page and submit the completed form to aclms@gov.gg.

Applications can be submitted from Friday 3rd September 2021 until 9am on Monday 1st November 2021.

If you require a paper version to be posted to you, please use the same email address to request this.

A selection process will be conducted to ensure that all applicants are evaluated fairly, to identify those most aligned with the Strategy for Nature and to ensure that the successful applicants/projects will achieve measurable and meaningful benefits to the local environment.

 

*Sark and Alderney have their own environmental policies and so the Strategy for Nature does not encompass these islands.
