ChangeX, supported by Accenture, has launched a £36,000 fund for projects that help build thriving and sustainable communities

The fund looks to support groups that want to build thriving and sustainable communities across Leeds. These groups could be local community groups, schools and other organisations.

The fund is part of the the Accenture Sustainable Community Challenge. Which aims to support groups in starting community projects related to environmental sustainability.

How can groups start their projects?

Groups can choose from a curated portfolio of proven ideas that have already had a positive impact in other communities across the world.

Local groups who apply for funding to start one of the ideas on offer will have 30 days to build a small team and design an action plan. On completing these steps, they will be eligible for seed funding. You can find out more about the ChangeX fund and apply here.
