Friends of the Lake District has been giving grants to help the environment for over 70 years. We’ve helped to fund school nature areas, major woodland creation, events that provide opportunities for people to discover something new about the natural environment and the purchase of land for everyone to enjoy in the future.
Impacts of our Landscape Grant Scheme:
The grant funds small scale projects and works that will conserve and enhance the landscape (and within that flora and fauna, cultural heritage), connect people with it and aid their enjoyment of it. Projects must demonstrate a clear and positive benefit to the landscape of Cumbria. Support is open to charitable organisations, voluntary and community groups, schools, social enterprises and local councils or conservation agencies. There are no application deadlines as the grant is open all year round.

We've written about some of the brilliant projects that have been supported by Friends of the Lake District's Landscape Grant Scheme. We hope these success stories give you some guidance and about the kind of projects and activities that we are looking to support.
