The Bristol 2015 Neighbourhood Partnerships Fund

This was launched in June and is now closed.

This £250,000 fund was set up to provide a grant of £10,000 to each neighbourhood in Bristol. The aim of the fund is to enable every neighbourhood in the city to play an active part in identifying and delivering projects for Bristol’s European Green Capital year. What’s really exciting is that decisions are made on an individual neighbourhood level, so it’s local people who make the choices about the projects that are selected for their area.

Andrew Garrad, Chairman of Bristol 2015 Ltd, said: “One of the reasons that Bristol won the European Green Capital bid was its commitment to sustainability at a grassroots level. This fund will allow communities and neighbourhoods to build on the great work that is already happening, by enabling exciting new initiatives and projects that will ultimately help make Bristol a happier, healthier city.”
