Community Pot Fund
‘Stepping into Nature’ is awarding grants to local communities for projects which improve the health and wellbeing of people in later life, those with dementia and their carers by enabling them to connect to nature.
Grants available range from £100 up to £2000. This funding will support 70% of the costs with the remaining 30% in kind or volunteer hours. If you have a project that you would like to get funded, particularly in Dorchester, Bridport, Beaminster, Swanage, Lyme Regis, Chickerell or the immediate surrounding areas then we would like to hear from you.
