In March 2023, we are open for funding applications for Nature on Prescription projects. Thank you to Gloucestershire NHS Integrated Care Board for the opportunity for Gloucestershire Local Nature Partnership to be able to offer funding for green social prescribing projects to benefit Gloucestershire's more deprived areas.

This funding is for:
Projects that deliver a green social prescribing project to support the tackling of health inequalities in Gloucestershire.
There is a total of £100,000 available, to fund potentially between two and four projects. Grants are likely to be between £20,000 - £50,000.
Projects can involve adults or children or both.
We’re looking for nature connection, nature engagement or community nature projects that can bring health or social benefits, for example helping to improve mild mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression, and/or offering people support with personal wellbeing, isolation or confidence. Above all we’re interested in your creative ideas.
We would like to first select a short-list of early project concepts, and then ask those short-listed organisations to co-design the project with the relevant Social Prescriber. We will then assess the co-designed project application.
Early project concept ideas should be received by 31st March 2023
