Community Spaces is a £57.5 million open grants programme that is managed by Groundwork UK as an award partner to the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces initiative. The programme helps community groups create or improve green and open spaces so that the quality of life in neighbourhoods across England is enhanced.
The programme opened for small and medium grants (£10,000 - £49,999) in March 2008 and closed to new applications on January 7, 2011. www.community-spaces.org.uk
