Next Door Nature

The National Lottery Heritage Fund is partnering with The Wildlife Trusts to deliver a Platinum Jubilee legacy investment, which will support around 200 new groups across the UK to identify and implement local action in their communities.

The joint initiative, Next Door Nature, aims to give access to the natural environment to thousands of people who may not have fully appreciated it before, while raising awareness of climate change and restoring natural heritage.

Projects supported by the initiative could include:
• Establishing wild habitats and green corridors
• Rewilding school grounds
• Transforming urbanised and unused areas into green spaces

This £5 million grant pot sits alongside a £2 million Jubilee investment to support paid placements for young people from under-served communities in the nature workforce. More information via the link – Next Door Nature
