Coastal Foundation Fund Accepting Applications for 2024

Sea Changers is offering grants of up to £2500 for community groups and other not-for-profit organisations to help prevent negative impacts on UK coastal and marine environments and species by reducing marine litter through the provision of well-located coastal water fountains that will significantly reduce the use of non-reusable plastic drinks bottles.

The Coastal Foundation Fund will support groups to cover the cost of purchasing a water fountain unit for installation in a busy or environmentally important coastal location.

Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • Need and impact – fountains should be placed in areas which either:
    • Have significant public use/a lot of littering.
    • Are of environmental importance or status.
  • Viability to be operational within 2024.
  • Sustainability.
  • Value for money.

Funding is only for the cost of purchasing a water foundation. Installation or maintenance costs will not be considered.

The deadline for applications is 23 February 2024.
