How does my club apply for a Wildlife Habitat Trust grant?

The Wildlife Habitat Trust is made up of three trusts.

  1. The Wildlife Habitat Trust lends money to BASC clubs, syndicates and members to enable land purchase for shooting and conservation purposes.

2. The Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp Trust administers the merchandise and annual stamp programme.

3. The Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust (WHCT) grants money for conservation projects for the benefit of migratory wildfowl.

The WHCT is a charity and is therefore regulated by The Charity Commission. In granting money, the WHCT trustees will need to be satisfied that the aims and objects of the WHCT are being met, and are of public benefit.

Any club interested in grant funding can find more information on the WHT website.

You may also wish to speak to Paul Williamson, BASC’s head of land management and also secretary to the WHT trusts.
