Whilst practical activities for our Local Places for Nature scheme are currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are still accepting applications. Please contact [email protected] for more information.
Nature is under threat and it’s time to take action.
We’re excited to launch our Local Places for Nature scheme – a brand-new initiative that aims to create, restore and enhance hundreds of habitats across the country.
Applications are now open to community groups and organisations looking to help reverse nature’s decline.
We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get involved. So, we’ve designed a choice of packages tailored to different groups and organisations. Each pre-paid package includes native plants, tools and other materials. We’ll handle the orders and deliveries, and our project officers will even provide support on the ground.
Our packages fall into three categories.
It is a simple application process, and applications will be assessed regularly by the project grant panels.

Three regional coordinators are on hand to support you through the application process. If you need more information, please contact [email protected]
Our initiative is part of a wider £5m Welsh Government 'Local Places for Nature' fund, committed to acquiring, restoring and enhancing nature ‘on your doorstep’.
