The Breathe Better Air Community Fund, launched on 5th June to mark World Environment Day, will help grassroots community groups raise awareness and tackle air pollution.

The focus of the Breathe Better Air Community Fund is to tackle air pollution at a local level to demonstrate impact across areas most affected by air pollution.


The scheme will encourage and enable grassroots organisations in the Liverpool City Region, Birmingham and Manchester, to become effective air quality campaigners, give visibility to community representatives driving awareness of air quality issues, and seek to strengthen evidence bases regarding local approaches to tackling air pollution.

The Heart of England Community Foundation is responsible for delivering the fund in Birmingham. Grants of up to £5,000 are available to eligible grassroots organisations across Birmingham.

Who can apply: Voluntary or community groups with a governing document, constitution or set of rules in the group’s name, based in Birmingham.
