Wiltshire Community Foundation is delighted to announce funding for the community from Science Museum Group Wroughton Solar Park.
The solar park started to generate power in July 2016 and funding is available to benefit the community in the surrounding area.
Applications are now open for community groups to apply for small grants funding of up to £2k for community organisations, working to improve the lives of people living in the parish areas of Broad Hinton, Winterbourne Bassett, Avebury, Ogbourne St George, Ogbourne St Andrew, Aldbourne and Baydon. In addition, applications are also open for grants of up to £20k for any community organisation, including schools for projects that have a focus on science, technology, engineering, maths, environment, health, play.
Examples might be the use of renewable energy, ecology or habitat conservation. Projects can be for the creation of a physical asset or for the encouragement of learning i.e. for delivering a specific benefit to the area or providing education about a particular issue. Grants can be for capital or revenue costs.
The project must deliver benefit to communities within a 10km radius of Wroughton Solar Park.
