Support & Funding

We offer support to help Transition groups across England, Wales and Northern Ireland 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.

We run regular and one-off training events throughout the year and our latest round of seed funding grants is open until January 2024. Both are designed to support, nourish and strengthen your group. More information about each below.

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

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, a community hub or green space; to run a visioning process; access training or develop partnerships to work in solidarity with under-resourced groups in the local community.

Our grants range from £100 to £10,000. Applications for our latest round of seed funding are open until January 2024.

Training & Workshops

As our communities and groups face new challenges, we’ve developed two new training programmes designed just for Transition groups.

If you are a new group or considering forming one, our short 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 will help your existing group 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.


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.

“The Future We Want” Visioning Guide

Our updated, step-by-step guide helps you explore What Is, to ask big What If? questions, and start to work out What’s Next? We also have a plain text version of the guide if that is more accessible for you.
