A photograph of lambs jumping in the countryside - Opportunities for children at Oval Learning schools to connect with nature

Funding for children to connect with nature from the CLA Charitable Trust

Schools, PTAs and charities can apply for grants for projects that help disabled or disadvantaged children connect with nature and the countryside.

The funding supports projects that improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of people who are disabled or disadvantaged by helping them to visit and participate in recreational and educational opportunities in the countryside.

Priority is given to projects that focus on children and young people, disadvantaged financially, physically, mentally, or from areas of deprivation.

Funding can be used to support projects, capital works and running costs. School projects supported in the past include funding for outdoor classrooms, forest school provisions, and horticulture areas within school grounds.
