The Circular Future Fund by John Lewis Partnership in association with Hubbub will support a small number of high qualities, innovative projects over one year, starting from May 2022. This fund aims to support trailblazing ideas and innovations that can accelerate the transition towards a more circular economy by shifting consumer mindsets.
The £1 million fund is focused in the areas of textiles, food or household products, technology or services. The project, which will provide individual grants between £150,000 and £300,000, is aimed to fund projects which will have a measurable impact (now or in the future) and a clear legacy, UKFT said in a press release.
Projects will be selected by a grant panel, consisting of independent experts on the circular economy, grant making and innovation authorities, as well as senior representatives from the John Lewis Partnership. The application deadline is midnight on the 9th January 2022.
