G7 brings climate & environment focus

Protecting future generations

As the new CEO, one of the questions I was asked in my opening week was ‘what’s the most pressing issue facing Quartet?’  It’s not an easy question to answer, particularly as there has been a rise in all kinds of need as a result of the pandemic, but I would have no hesitation in saying that the most significant issue of all our lifetimes is certainly climate change.  

The first document I read when I joined Quartet was its recent Vital Signs report highlighting just how deeply affected our communities will soon be without co-ordinated action from us all.  

On the eve of the G7 summit there could be no better time to renew our focus on the local response to the climate emergency, and our plans to safeguard the health and wellbeing of future generations. 

This is why environmental projects such as those run by APE CiC featured here, are so important. Read more

Funding news Where the grants go

Working closely with our fund holders we’re delighted to announce over £280,000 went to projects across the West of England last month. People suffering with dementia, survivors of domestic violence and young women are just three of many groups to benefit. 
How much money goes to environmental causes?
Climate change is always in the news. So how much money do you think UK charitable trusts and foundations award environmental causes such as climate change each year, as a total of their awards? 
Local charities are crying out for funding now
Our new Resilience Grant Programme is in the news. It’s been inundated with grant applications from across our patch. Be assured we’re working hard to make sure as many of the applications as possible get the funding they need.

Featured story Greening the inner-city

When you drive up the M32 from Bristol City Centre it’s hard to imagine what lies behind the colourful roadside fencing on Newfoundland Road. Yet under the shadow of a large sycamore tree just short of junction 3 you’ll find a green oasis, St Pauls Adventure Playground.

APE Project CiC – who run the playground – received a £2,000 Megawatt Community Energy grant in 2019 for Green on the Scene for weekly environmental awareness sessions with a focus on improving local air quality and increasing biodiversity.
