Sea-Changers will allocate funding on a six monthly basis. Applicants can only submit one funding application per cycle. Please read our funding policy in full to ensure you are eligible to apply. To help your future planning the closing dates for the next grant cycle is the 31st of March 2017. Please note that we have just updated our funding policy.The main clarification within the new policy will relate to Sea-Changers not funding any projects being undertaken outside the UK. We receive a high number of grants, often for similar kinds of projects such as beach clean related activities. When completing the form consider what makes your project stand out. For example, how are you engaging with the local community, how are you ensuring the sustainability of the project, how will you measure success and so on.
Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their grant applications approximately 8-10 weeks after the application closing date.
If the project meets our criteria, and is shortlisted we may arrange for a Sea-Changers representative to discuss the planned project in more detail with the applicant and report back to the trustees. Application decisions will be made by Sea-Changers Trustees with specialist advice provided by marine biologist, Helen Scales.
