The Ernest Cook Trust has announced that it is accepting applications for funding through its Outdoor Learning Officer Grant scheme. The Trust believes that inspirational educators and mentors are key to engaging people with the environment.
The scheme provides funding to charities and not for profit organisations that want to employ learning officers/outdoor educators. The Trust will provide up to £15,000 per year (estimated as 50% of a full-time salary including on costs) for up to three years.
Priority will be given to applications from urban and rural deprived areas and applications that include disadvantaged members of society.
The closing date for applications is the 27th September 2019.
