Facilitation fund: Countryside Stewardship

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

The facilitation fund is closed for applications.

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
