The Sustainable Communities Fund

This fund is managed by the South Downs National Park Trust in partnership with South Downs National Park Authority. Partnerships and constituted not-for-profit organisations (which include social enterprises, community interest companies and voluntary organisations) and for-profit organisations (projects cannot be for financial gain to the business) can apply for funding if their project contributes to the South Downs National Park Partnership Management Plan.

Grants are available for up to 50% of the project cost from £250 to a maximum of £10,000. Please note that the criteria of the fund are regularly reviewed and may change without notice. South Downs National Park Trust is not obliged to consider applications under criteria which were in place when an enquiry or expression of interest was made.

Application forms are not available for download as we encourage an initial conversation about your project- please contact Miriam Swan using the details at the top of this page.
