Green Infrastructure Projects

In terms of outcomes, Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund (GICEF) projects will mainly contribute towards ‘Involving Communities, and Increasing Participation’. Projects will be bespoke and specific to the communities they engage with. Delivery of the fund will not be prescriptive and will support community engagement projects which have been designed from the bottom up, are locally relevant and are innovative to the area.

Priority will be given to projects which involve groups working in the local area, who both know and are invested in the communities which the project will benefit. Our main target group are communities in urban deprived communities and applications will need to clearly demonstrate how they will engage with the different groups within their community.

We want people to value, use and enjoy their greenspaces, and through this to feel happier, healthier and better connected to their communities. We expect this to lead to inequalities in health and opportunity being reduced, and an increase in how people value and understand what nature does for them. Green infrastructure can also help people develop skills and have the confidence to seek and sustain jobs.
