Walking in Ashfield grant scheme

We would like to support local community organisations to provide community walking opportunities within Ashfield. For this, we will distribute UKSPF funding in small grants of up to £1000 to local organisations within the Ashfield district.

These funds could be spent on things such as set up costs, paying for transport to explore different walks, purchasing equipment, printing maps/guides, or creating trails for children and families within the district (this is not a definitive list, we would love to hear your ideas!).

How would £1000 support your organisation to provide the above? Fill in the application form and let us know.

All grant payments will be paid by BACS as soon as all necessary processes are completed e.g. setting up of new accounts. 

Organisations will be asked to confirm their organisation type (i.e. charity status and legal structure) on the application form.

Note: Businesses and individuals are ineligible for this fund.

  • Proof of your organisation authenticity
