The Pebble Trust offers grants of up to £5,000 to support projects that can help communities to build a more sustainable and equal society. Applications are welcomed from charities, community groups, businesses or individuals for projects that advance environmental protection or improvement, support organisations and individuals developing sustainable lifestyles and take into account future resource availability, fossil fuel use, climate change and the desirability of a more equal society.
