Funding for Rural Community and Education Projects (UK)

Funding for Rural Community and Education Projects (UK)

The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust, which supports charities in the UK working in agriculture, rural development and insurance has announced that the next closing date for applications is the 29th May 2021. The Trustees are particularly interested in initiatives in the areas of education of young people in rural areas and the relief of poverty within rural areas.

Trustees are particularly interested in funding larger initiatives, which would have a significant impact on the rural community. 

Grants of between £1,000 and £50,000 are available. In the last ten years The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust has donated almost £3m to fund education and social welfare projects in towns and villages across the UK.

Projects supported in the past include:

Farms for City Children, which aims to expand the horizons of children from towns and cities by offering them a week in the countryside living together in one of their farms and the Royal Highland Education Trust which aims to create an opportunity for each child in Scotland to experience the countryside and to facilitate a wider understanding of the environmental, economic and social realities of rural Scotland. Its key activities include farm visits, classroom speaker visits and a number of high profile national competition. 

The NFU Mutual Charitable Trust also provides small grants of up to £1,000 through the NFU Mutual's Community Giving Fund which supports worthwhile community events, charities, schools and community group activities that are local to their operations. In 2019, it helped 88 community groups and charities across the UK.
