Rethinking Parks: Deadline 28 March




Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and Nesta are once again partnering to invite applications to a new Rethinking Parks fund that will support innovative ideas to address the challenges parks face. One of two funding streams is still open for applications:

  • Prototyping award: Grants of up to £100,000 over 9-15 months to support testing and learning from digital and data innovations with the potential to address challenges that parks face. Deadline 28 March 2018

To be considered for funding and support through the programme, the lead applicant should:

  • be based in the UK
  • have identified a public park/s or park service/s to work with
  • if not the landowner, have agreement or strong likelihood of getting agreement from the landowner to develop the innovation
  • be a not-for-profit organisation; a social enterprise or a local authority

Partnerships are welcome as long as one eligible organisation is nominated as the lead.
