As plant lovers, we know how beneficial getting your hands muddy can be for mental and physical wellbeing. Providing time away from busy lives, an opportunity to connect with new people and a chance to get out in the fresh air – gardening can help us all feel good. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our new RHS Community Wellbeing Grant.
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.
Who can apply?
The RHS Community Wellbeing Grant is open to voluntary, community and other not-for-profit organisations. We are welcoming applications from groups based anywhere in the UK.
What are we looking for?
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
