Local School Nature Grants Scheme

Helping schools branch out into nature

What do birdboxes, bee hotels, fire woks and nature experts all have in common?  They are all available free to schools as part of Learning through Landscapes Local School Nature Grants Programme, supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

The grants provide an assortment of nature equipment up to the value of £500 and a two hour training session. The packages are customisable, enabling Infant, Primary and Secondary schools to choose from a menu of items which best suit their learners and their setting. All schools in England, Scotland and Wales are welcome to apply. Following the immense popularity of Local School Nature Grants in 2017, 2018 and 2019, we are delighted to be able to expand the scheme for 2020. We are offering 500 grants and a wider mix of products and training to appeal to an even broader range of ages.

The programme is now live – please head to the guidance page to find out more.

NB: this scheme does not provide cash grants to schools

The project is funded by Postcode Local Trust, which receives funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
