The Nourish Fund

The Nourish Fund makes funding of up to £2,000 available to enable small or newly set-up organisations to access our paid-for services, that they may not otherwise be able to afford.

The Nourish Fund is there to support small or newly set up organisations in London access the high-quality expertise on offer at Compost London. It is designed to help your organisation grow, develop or become more sustainable.

What's on offer?

You can apply to the fund for up to £2,000 to cover the costs of services which will enable you to build the skills, knowledge or systems within your organisation (we call this building an organisation's capacity).

We recognise that it is often difficult to find the money to invest in the development or growth of your organisation and our small bursary scheme is designed to ensure that groups who are typically least able to access this type of support may benefit.
