The Chestnut Fund is an independent charity, making grants available to encourage and enable community groups to carry out conservation activities.

The grants fall into two categories:

  • Start-up grants

These are for groups who have no money when they are first set up and are available to groups in their first year of existence. The maximum grant will be £150.

  • Support grants

These are for groups who have no money for tools, equipment and training. Preference will be given to resources selected from The Conservation Volunteers sources. The maximum grant will be £350.

The fund is administered by BTCV and further details are available on their website: https://www.tcv.org.uk/community/join-community-network
