Opportunities within the UK

Rethinking Parks - £2 million fund to support parks innovators across the UK

Like many other public services, our public parks are under increasing pressure, with limited resources available to adapt to changing circumstances. Innovative approaches are required, but UK parks have little budget or time to invest in trialling new ways of working that could help alleviate this pressure.

That is why this partnership has launched a call for proposals to Rethinking Parks; a two-stream innovation fund that will help support parks innovators.
