Securing a Brighter Future for the British Countryside
The Prince’s Countryside Fund provides more than £1m in grants each year to projects across the UK. Grants of up to £50,000 are available for innovative projects that provide a lasting legacy to the individuals and communities they seek to benefit.
Rural communities face a range of challenges. One way in which the trust helps grassroots organisations overcome these is through a grant programme.
Applications to support activity that results in a long-term positive impact on rural communities by helping the people that live and work in the countryside are welcomed. The grant programme currently aims to tackle the following key rural issues:
- Improve the prospects of viability for family farm businesses
- Sustain rural communities and drive economic vibrancy
- Support aid delivery in emergency and building resilience
The next round of applications will open on Monday 4th September and close at 5pm on Thursday 5th October.
The Prince's Farm Resilience Programme Family provides support for small family farms. It is being run annually in 15 locations around the UK and is open to small dairy, livestock and mixed family farm businesses and includes a series of free workshops and one-to one guidance.
Contact Maddy Fitzgerald if you would like to be emailed with these locations, or if you would like to suggest your local area as a potential delivery location for future years.
