Any school or community group within the United Kingdom that is planning a project which actively involves young people up to the age of 21 is encouraged to apply and help make a greener future.
Applications will be considered as they are received, and all projects must be completed and payments claimed by 31 March 2021.
At this time, it is unclear what social distancing rules will be in place when the tree planting season begins again. However, the Council are still keen to encourage groups to develop tree planting projects, managed by small groups in their communities.
If Covid-19 restrictions allow, they hope safely-run tree planting activities will happen during National Tree Week – 28 November to 6 December 2020.
If your funded project cannot go ahead at any time this winter due to social distancing restrictions, then the delivery deadline of your grant will be extended to the following year.
