NEWS: £101,400 secured to protect and celebrate coastal wildlife

I am thrilled to announce that a bid I was commissioned to write has secured £101,400 initial funding for an major new coastal conservation project on the Dee Estuary, UK.

Early last year (2018) I was commissioned by Cheshire Wildlife Trust, a wildlife conservation charity in North West England, to help them develop a new project. I worked with the Director of Conservation and Area Manager to advise on stakeholder/community consultation, develop the framework of conservation activity and then wrote the application to the National Lottery (Heritage Fund).

The project will protect rare and vulnerable coastal wildlife and habitats by creating opportunities for local people to take action to protect them.

Check out our official announcement, including a quote from me, here.

I specialise in developing people-focussed conservation programmes and am available to take on new clients from mid-February 2019.

To date, I’ve secured £350,000 in development funding and over £1m match funding for conservation projects worth £5.6m. I can offer support in pre-development, bid writing and during the development phase. I am currently: an advisor to the Development Board of a Landscape Partnership Scheme, developing a new national project and offering pre-development advice to a national charity.
