Love Your Park Community Fund
Our Love Your Park Community Fund is helping communities recover from the COVID-19 pandemic whilst cherishing their green spaces.
All projects in the first grant round demonstrated how they will help communities to recover from the pandemic by connecting with those who do not regularly benefit from a green space, are socially isolated or without a garden of their own.
