Sussex Lund Fund Grant programme

Would you like to improve your corner of the Kent / Sussex High Weald for wildlife or scenic beauty? Do you have an idea that might enable others to access and enjoy this spectacular landscape? If so, there may be funding available through the Sussex Lund 2023 grant programme.

About Sussex Lund
Sussex Lund supports small-scale, practical projects that improve the landscape of the High Weald AONB and the towns, villages and hamlets on its fringes. It also supports projects that help people to experience the landscape and build connections to it. Projects focused on farms and woods are eligible, as well as community greenspaces such as churchyards, school grounds, allotments, and recreation areas.

The annual programme is supported by Lund Trust and administered by the High Weald AONB Partnership.

The application window closes on 3 October, but we recommend you get in touch as soon as possible so we can help you develop your project. Here’s how it works:
