Support & Funding

We offer support to help Transition groups across England and Wales develop and grow. We do this by connecting groups, helping them learn from each other, seed funding grants, training and sharing resources such as our Visioning Guide.

Our seed funding grants and training opportunities for 2022 are now live! Both are designed to support, nourish and strengthen your group. Please find more information on both below.

If you are looking for support in Scotland, please connect with our Scottish partners – Scottish Communities Climate Action Network here.

Seeding

Seed Funding

Our seed funding programme offers grants to help Transition Groups build their capacity and increase their impact in their local community.

Grants may support groups to pay for coordination or core costs; to develop initiatives such as a social enterprise, climate emergency centre or community garden; to run a visioning process; access training or develop partnerships to work in solidarity with more marginalised groups in the local community.

Our grants range from £100 to £10,000.

Visioning

Visioning Guide

Bring your community together to reimagine a different future using our Visioning Guide.

This guide takes you through a simple and effective three stage process to support you to work with your local community to ask big What If? questions that engage your imagination and help you collectively co-create the future you want to see.

Our process enables collaboration, co-design and specifically allows for tensions to emerge so that they can be worked through together in order to develop a sense of shared ownership and solidarity, setting the basis for future change to happen.

Training & Workshops

As our communities and groups face new challenges, this autumn we’re offering two new training programmes designed just for Transition groups.

If you are a new group or if you’re considering forming one, our one-day Launch workshop is the perfect way to find out more about the Transition movement and how to get started on a firm footing. Meanwhile our Thrive programme of six short workshops is perfect if your group wants to become stronger and more sustainable, reach new people and have the confidence to explore new ideas and projects.

Drawing on years of shared experience within the Transition movement and beyond, both workshops will give you useful resources, tools and practises relevant to your group and the work of community led change.

Resources

The Transition movement has a wealth of useful resources and guides to support to do transition in your local community. We have featured some of our favourites below.  You can find more resources on Transition Network’s website here.
