£500 Eco Grant for Somerset schools

£500 Eco Grant for Somerset schools

Schools can apply for a Eco Grant

Published: 30th Nov 2021

Could your school benefit from an Eco Schools grant of £500? For the first time Somerset Waste Partnership is offering 50 schools the chance to win a grant to support environmental work in school. 


These grants are designed to promote participation in the Eco-Schools Programme which provides a simple seven-step framework that guides, empowers and motivates pupils to drive environmental awareness in their school, local community and beyond. Schools can apply for £500 grants to help support their membership and progression through the Eco-Schools programme.


Grants can be used for a range of environmental actions in the school and local community, including projects designed to reduce wastage around the school premises and to cover cost of Eco-School Green Flag Assessment (£200+VAT) if you apply for this. Grant applications will be assessed by representatives from Somerset Waste Partnership and Carymoor Environmental Trust.


Please follow this link for more details and this link for the application form.
