LeedsACTS! Seedcorn Funding Round is OPEN!

Added: 03/12/2020

Leeds ACTS!

LeedsACTS! is a partnership between the city’s three universities and the many voluntary and community organisations in Leeds. This latest seedcorn funding encourages working to build closer relationships between researchers, students, charities, voluntary and community organisations to support joint work that benefits the communities of Leeds and to shape how the higher education sector engages with others in the city.

Seedcorn Funding Round 2020/21

LeedsACTS! has a small (£2,500) pot of funding to support 4-6 proposals that build collaborative links. The aim is to provide greater opportunity for voluntary and community organisations to come together with people from universities to explore opportunities for collaboration and to work up ideas for joint action.

  • The LeedsACTS! seedcorn funding is an ideal opportunity for early stage researchers to begin engaging with local third sector and community groups and to test out opportunities for collaboration around relevant issues.

LeedsACTS! is working on the following thematic areas and seedcorn funding applications must address one of the themes:

  • housing
  • health & wellbeing
  • sustainable food
  • Leeds £ and the circular economy
  • climate and environment
  • education, skills & access

Application Process:

The seedcorn funding round is open until 31 January 2021

Applications must include both an academic and third sector partner. If you require help in finding a partner, LeedsACTS can help facilitate this.
