MARINE LITTER FUND 2018/19

In 2018, we received a £20,000 grant from the Gardener’s Trust which enabled us to launch a specific fund to address marine litter issues, with the following objectives:

 

  • To address the root causes of marine litter in the UK.

  • To prevent or reduce marine litter impacting on UK coastal and marine environments and/or species.

  • To add to the body of knowledge about the nature and impact of marine litter in the UK.

 

We are primarily seeking applications in Scotland at the current time.

 

We allocate grants from our General Grant Fund and the Marine Litter Fund twice a year. Deadlines are 31st March and 30th September. 

Sea-Changers gives grants to a range of UK-based, marine conservation charities and not-for-profit organisations. We are particularly interested in grassroots projects which galvanise community action and projects which increase the number of people taking action for marine conservation. 

The projects funded will achieve one or more of the following objectives:

  • To address the root causes of marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK.

  • To prevent or reduce negative impacts on UK coastal and marine environments and/or species.

  • To add to the body of knowledge about marine conservation threats and challenges in the UK.

We give grants to UK marine charities and not for profit organisations for conservation projects and research.

HOW TO APPLY FOR FUNDING

Applying for funding couldn’t be easier, just follow the steps below:

 

  1. Read through our grant-giving policy to decide if you are eligible to apply to our General Grant Fund or the Marine Litter Fund and to check if your project meets the funding criteria (which are outlined above).

  3. Complete our application form. We receive a high number of applications, 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? There are clear criteria outlined in the policy to help you. Please tick the appropriate box if you are applying for a grant from the Marine Litter Fund. 

  4. Complete and return the application form before 31st March or 30th September.

 

You will then receive an acknowledgement of your application with details of timescales of the review process and what happens next. When the grant panel has made their final decision (usually 8-10 weeks after the application deadline), we will write to you and inform you of the outcome of your application.​
