Grants of £500 are available for youth-led projects that celebrate UK native wildflowers, plants and fungi in exciting and engaging ways.

The funding is made available to individuals and groups of young people through Grow Wild’s Youth Grants programme to support young people to deliver a wide range of creative projects that will inspire communities and help people connect to each other and nature.

Grants can be used for anything project-related, from basic materials and equipment to resources or training.

Young people aged 14 to 25 can apply directly as an individual or as a group of up to 6 people, but will need to nominate a youth, community or education-focused organisation to support them with their project.

Successful projects can be started in May and must be completed by the end of October 2024.

The deadline for applications is 3pm on the 19th March 2024.
