The NESCAN Hub have an allocated pot of seed funding for community climate action and biodiversity projects within Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire:

Funding is a maximum of £500 per organisation. This maximum amount is to enable us to fund as many organisations and projects as possible. The Seed Fund is designed for small community projects that are ineligible for other forms of funding and cannot be used to part fund large projects. To achieve this, applying organisations must have an income of less than £50,000 per annum.

To help achieve NESCAN Hub’s vision and objectives, we will prioritise projects that:

– Aim to create long-term change.
– Build the skills and capacity of groups or organisations and communities.
– Support and encourage collaborative working across groups or organisations, communities and areas.
– Encourage sustainability through reusing, recycling and upcycling goods and products.

The deadline for applications for 2022/2023 funding which must be allocated by 31st March 2023, is Tuesday 28th February 2023 although funding will be allocated before this date.
