Marine conservation charities and charitable organisations based and working in the UK can apply now for a small grant of up to £600 for projects that take place in the UK and address the charity’s current objectives.

challenges in the UK.
To prevent or reduce negative impacts on UK coastal and marine
environments and / or species.

To prevent or reduce marine litter impacting on UK coastal and
marine environments and/or species.

marine litter in the UK.
For groups applying to conduct beach cleaning activities,
Sea-Changers will look favourably on projects that can demonstrate
connections to existing wider beach clean activities. It will also
look more favourably on activities that are considering potential
recycling options for material gathered.
Approximately 60 per cent of this funding will support projects in
Scotland with 40 per cent going elsewhere in UK.
There is particular interest in grassroots projects which
galvanise community action and in projects which increase the
number of people taking action for marine conservation.
There are normally two funding rounds per year.
