Worcester Council: Green grants for grabs

Worcester City Council is offering grants of up to £1,000 to community groups, charities and voluntary organisations that wish to take action to protect the environment.

“The impact of climate change is very real, with record temperatures recorded in many countries at the start of this year and Worcester’s highest ever temperature recorded last summer,” said Cllr Karen Lewing, vice chair of Worcester City Council’s Environment Committee.

“Our combined efforts are making a difference, with CO2 emissions per person in Worcester reduced by over 50% since 2005.  I encourage everyone in the city to pledge positive action in 2023.  Applying for an environmental community grant from the City Council will help your community group or school to do just this.”

Applications are invited to support initiatives which will reduce carbon emissions, improve resilience to climate change, reduce waste, benefit the natural environment or raise awareness about environmental issues.

Christopher Whitehead Language College, eight Worcester primary schools, the RSPB, St. Wulfstan’s Church, St. Paul’s Hostel and the Oasis Warndon Community Hub were among organisations to successfully apply for the grant in 2022.

The funding helped to plant more fruit trees and vegetables, improve recycling facilities, protect bees and build bird, bat, insect and hedgehog houses, amongst other actions.
