Are you aware of funding available to protect and enhance Kent's green spaces? 

Spring is around the corner - a perfect time for Kent residents to head out and enjoy the landscape around us. 

Did you know that if you have a project which helps to protect, conserve and improve green spaces accessible to the public, you could receive funding?

The Phillips Fund was set up to help organisations who take care of natural spaces for Kent residents of today and generations to come to enjoy. Grantees could receive up to £1,000 to help with a variety of projects, including:

  •  Community garden projects (planting costs)
  • Regeneration of hedgerows or village ponds
  • Creation of wildflower meadows or new native woodlands
  • Planting of native trees and hedging regeneration
  • Restoration of local habitats

All projects funded must be open for members of the public to enjoy at no charge.

To apply, head to the funding page on our website and scroll down to find The Phillips Fund. Or for more information and to find out if your project is eligible, contact Natalie - Natalie@kentcf.org.uk 

The Phillips Fund has already helped small organisations and groups with a host of green projects, such as Swanley Wildlife and Nature Group who received funding to plant eight native trees and 500 spring bulbs to further enhance the Environment Area in Swanley Park.

MASSIVE 'thank you ' to everyone at Kent Community Foundation. Your funding support is HUGELY appreciated and has enabled us to get into the heart of local communities with REAL, affordable, healthy and tasty food that does so much more than feed people.
