Community clean-ups

  1. What the project will do

    Part of the Clean City funding has been set aside to pay for smaller-scale projects, which we're calling community clean-ups.

    These might be some people getting together to plant some fruit trees, do a litter-pick, or develop a herb-garden on some communal land.

    We’re offering grants of up to £200 to support you or your group to run regular clean-ups or events. We’ll make sure the grants include money to help keep the area clean and green afterwards too.

    This could include tools for on-going events, or plants to transform a grot spot. We’ll give you advice on running a successful event, including health and safety information and how to publicise it.

    If you don't want to apply for a grant, then we may still be able to help.

    We have tools, equipment and promotional materials that can be borrowed, all free of charge.

    The clean-ups should be led by the local community, so if you aren't already part of an established group, you can still apply by teaming up with your neighbours, other local people or even a local business or school. We'll be keeping a record of all the community clean-ups so that we can map them to see how the Clean City campaign is spreading across the city.

    Encouraging communities to create and plan their own events will work the best because people know what’s important in their area.
