Small Grants Awarded

Would you like to run an activity for the local community around the Walthamstow Tool Library?

Forest Recycling Project has received funding from “Awards for All” to help local residents to both lead activities for the community the Walthamstow Tool Library and build community planters in their neighbourhood.


UPDATE: This programme is closed now. We thank everybody for sending proposals, facilitating skill share sessions, creating community planter projects and participating in our beautiful workshops. It’s been lovely to have you round! We hope to be able to offer something very similar next year, so please follow us on our socials and this website to not miss out!


 We want to support you in doing the things you love doing

Perhaps you would like to offer an urban gardening activity? Facilitate a foraging walk through Walthamstow? Host a workshop on how to make your own windowsill planter? Organise a bike fixing skill share or an apple pressing day? Or would you like to build a community planter for your neighbourhood? 

You are the community: you know what the community needs and what you can offer

We are looking for projects and activities that will benefit the local community around Priory Court, and ideally get more people making use of the tool library. We can help to cover the expenses and support the activities with tools and advice! Have a look on the righthand side, what activities we have funded to get some inspiration!

Additionally, we would like to support local community planter building activities in your neighbourhood – by providing the planter as a flat pack, the necessary tools and supplies. Please note that there are two different forms – one for building community planters and another for all other proposed activities!

A panel of local residents and WTL staff will choose which ideas to support. All projects will need to be planned for delivery by 30th September 2022. Decisions will be made as applications come in, so better get your applications in as soon as possible! Download the proposal form (as well as info sheet) directly here or get a hard copy at the tool library:

Please send your proposal to or drop it off at the tool library during the opening times: Tuesday 4-7pm / Saturday 10am-1pm.

We look forward to hearing from you!
