Community project grants

The main sources of help for environmental community projects from Lancashire County Council are:

In addition we have a small community projects team to help community groups and organisations across Lancashire by funding project activities directly or by helping secure external funds. We support projects with realistic goals that, encourage people to be healthier and improve their local environment.

 We are particularly keen to work with:

  • communities from areas considered deprived
  • people with physical and mental health problems
  • areas with limited quality green space
  • people living in fuel poverty

If you believe that your organisation and project activity match these criteria and would like our assistance, please contact:

External Funding

There are many funding and finance opportunities available to community groups and voluntary organisations in Lancashire. The environmental and community projects service may be able to help the groups we are working with to secure the funding required to complete projects. If you would like to find external funding available specific to your project, www.fundingcentral.org.uk provides a search engine to highlight the funding organisations applicable for your project. There may now be a small subscription charge to use this service.
