HOW TO APPLY
Sea-Changers gives one-off grants (i.e. not continual funding) to UK-based charities and ‘not-for-profit’ organisations including schools who are carrying out marine conservation related activities. We welcome applications from a wide variety of groups and entities.
Applying for funding couldn’t be easier, just follow the steps below:
Read through the Grant Programmes and Who can apply pages to see if you are eligible to apply, to check if your project meets the funding criteria and to help you decide which fund to apply to.
If you are applying to fund beach cleaning equipment we advise that you speak to The Helping Hand Company for a tailored quote. They produce robust equipment and offer a 10% discount to projects funded by Sea-Changers. Click here for full details.
Download and complete the Main Grant Fund application form or the Small Grant Fund 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 on our grants pages to help you.
Complete and return the application form.
Deadlines for the Main Grant Fund are 31st March and 30th September each year. Applications to the Small Grant Fund can be made any time.
You will receive an acknowledgement of your application with an indication of the timescales of the decision making process and what happens next. When the grant panel has made their final decision we will write to you and inform you of the outcome of your application.
