Bristol Avon Catchment Partnership

Bristol Avon catchment partnership fund

The Bristol Avon Catchment Partnership Steering Group has supported the development of a Catchment Partnership Fund. This fund is administered via a small grants scheme on behalf of the partnership. The purpose of the fund is to support the delivery and development of projects at all scales that will improve the water environment within the Bristol Avon Catchment.

Many of the organisations who support the Steering Group are contributing towards the Catchment Partnership Fund, hence all decisions with regards to this fund and its allocation are made collaboratively via the Steering Group.

To date, there have been 5 rounds of funding organised over the past 3 years, with 15 projects being supported across the catchment. For more information about the projects please see the Catchment Partnership Fund Summary Document 2018 or visit the Online Project Map.
