The E.Y.E. Project is proud to receive support from our Core funder,

The Southern Co-operative -      

"The Southern Co-operative is committed to safeguarding the environment in which we all live and work. Rather than offset our emissions by buying carbon credits that support environmental projects abroad, we invest in projects within the communities in which we trade (across the south of England).
The EYE Project is an innovative and dynamic approach to engaging young people in a fun, informative and hands-on way, and The Southern Co-operative is proud to support this. We strongly believe that by supporting local projects - such as the E.Y.E Project - with not only funding, but also with practical help, advice and co-operation, we can help people of all ages to make a real difference to the environment." - The Southern Co-operative


We would also like to thank the following Trust for the grant received in Autumn 2015:

The Ernest Cook Trust -

The Ernest Cook Trust is one of the UK’s leading outdoor learning charities. Rooted in the conservation and management of the countryside, the Trust actively encourages children and young people to learn from the land through hands-on outdoor learning opportunities on its estates and by offering grants.


and Southern Water for their Community Grant which will be used towards Eco Summit events in 2017.
