Funding Available for Green Projects (UK)

Delivery company DPD has announced that grants of up to £2,000 are available through its Eco Fund. The fund is open to anyone but schools and educational facilities across the UK working on green projects with their students and start-up companies working on developing environmentally friendly products are particularly encouraged to apply.

A total of £140,000 is available in 2020 with typical funding per project being approximately £1,500.

Previous projects supported include:

  • Hinckley Academy, which received £1,000 to purchase seven recycling bins for the school canteen area. The bins in the canteen area allowed pupils to segregate waste, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
  • Pitmaston Primary School has received £1,700 funding to redevelop its forest school facility and plant hedgerows creating an environment for wildlife to thrive.

Applications are reviewed monthly and there are no application deadlines.
