Community Environment Fund

Now in its third year, The Community Environment Fund, launched by Mayor Steve Rotheram, has returned!

Green projects from across the Liverpool City Region can now apply for up to £30,000 for initiatives to improve the city region’s environment and encourage long-term behavioural change.

The fund has already supported 92 local environmental projects including community gardens, bikes for veterans, beekeeping and food growing initiatives.

Previous Projects

Catch up on the achievements of previous grant recipients.

Urbanscape Community Garden

Khan transformed a piece of derelict land, blighted by flytipping, into an urban community garden.

Halton Veterans Cycling Project

Veterans in Halton recycled unclaimed bikes donated by police to help local people tackle their mental health issues.

Get Outdoors at Fir Tree Farm

Fir Tree Farm in St Helens gave children from urban areas – where there is little green space a taste of the great outdoors.

Wildflowers - Head North for Beauty

Wildflower meadows, sown by local children and residents, transformed derelict land in North Liverpool and Sefton.

Beekeeping in Toxteth

Save Our Bees created a hive of activity for children and young people in Toxteth, teaching beekeeping and making honey to sell locally.

This year, the Combined Authority is working with community fundraising platform Spacehive, to give projects the added opportunity to crowdfund. Grants will then join pledges from the local community to bring your transformative initiatives to life!

As part of this crowdfunding programme, groups could receive up to £30,000 towards their project. We will typically support up to 75% of project costs however, where there is an exceptional case to do so, this threshold can be exceeded.
