Gardening has been proven to positively impact our mental and physical wellbeing, providing access to the outdoors, time away from our busy lives and an opportunity to connect with others. We know how important green community spaces are and that’s why we’re pleased to launch our new RHS Community Wellbeing Grant. Supporting groups and organisations working at the heart of communities, the new funding will help deliver gardening projects with the aim of improving the wellbeing of participants.
Supporting groups and organisations at the heart of the community, our new grant will help you deliver gardening projects to improve the wellbeing of your participants. From building confidence through skills workshops, to developing an accessible outdoor space or running inter-generational planting sessions – if your idea supports wellbeing through growing, we want to hear about it!
The RHS Community Wellbeing Grant will provide successful applicants with between £5,000 and £10,000 to help their project and participants thrive. To be considered for funding, please complete an application form by 5pm on Monday 7 March.
We’re particularly interested in receiving applications from organisations whose projects:
- Are user-led and respond to the needs of the people who will benefit
- Increase access for people who are usually under-represented in gardening
- Are run by and/or for communities living in areas of high socio-economic deprivation
