The Corporation of London has a long standing
commitment to the environment and runs a number of key open spaces in and around London.
These include Epping Forest, Hampstead Heath and Burnham Beeches.
The Corporation also manages the Bridge House Trust,
London's largest grant making charitable trust. The Trust aims to benefit Londoners
through its grants programmes, one of which concerns environmental conservation.
The London Waterfowl Project and the London Wildlife Project of the
Wildlife Information Network have been made possible largely through funding from
the Trust, which has a grants budget in the current year of over £15 million. The Wildpro
modules "Waterfowl: Health and Management" and "UK Wildlife First Aid and
Care" were produced as a direct result of this support.
The Trust is keen to encourage applications from charitable
organisations seeking to undertake environmental work in Greater London. We are
particularly interested in:
- supporting environmental education projects
- local environmental work which involves volunteers
- maintaining biodiversity
- protecting and improving the natural environment
- encouraging sustainability
Delegates are welcome to take a copy of our guidance brochure and to
approach the Trust to discuss projects which meet our criteria. Delegates from local
authorities and other ineligible bodies are welcome to pass information on to colleagues
in the charitable sector and asked to encourage them to approach us for guidance.
