Grants for Greenwich community groups to spring clean their neighbourhoods

Local groups can get cash help or cleaning kits to spring clean their neigbourhoods.
Capital Clean-Up is offering grants of up to £2000 to community clean-up projects and clean up equipment kits for smaller activities.
It means residents can tackle local eyesores in areas where they live or work. They can also get support from the Royal Borough of Greenwich's Environment Champions scheme which can offer advice and give practical support such as rubbish clearance.
The Capital Clean-up grant scheme is funded by the Mayor of London and supported by the Environment Agency and Groundwork London. Grants are available to community groups, registered charities, schools or small businesses.
To qualify, you must meet certain application criteria depending on your project. There are two types of applications, one for the cash grant and the other for clean-up kits. In the forms, you will be asked to describe your clean-up activity in detail.
- Applications can be submitted up to 11 February 2013.
- Successful applicants who will be awarded the grants and kits in early April must be able to carry out clean-up events during April or May.
Full details and application form are available a twww.london.gov.uk/capitalclean-up.
