Facilitation fund: Countryside Stewardship

Funding to help groups of farmers, foresters and land managers improve the natural environment.

How the fund works

The funding is for a person or organisation (facilitator) to help a group of farmers and other land managers work together to:

  • improve the natural environment at a landscape rather than single-farm scale
  • achieve greater improvements than individual holdings could on their own

Read the Facilitation Fund guide for 2019 for more information.
