Do you want to make a lasting contribution to the heritage, people, and communities of the Garnock Connections area? Do you, or an organisation you’re involved with, have an idea for a project that you would like to make part of Garnock Connections? Then we want to hear from you!

Projects must be located within the Garnock Connections area, start after April 2018, be completed by March 2022, and help to make a lasting contribution to the heritage, people and communities of the Garnock Connections area.

We can only support new projects or distinctive new elements of existing projects. We are unable to support the ongoing management and maintenance of existing projects. You will also be expected to contribute to the total project budget (via match funding, in-kind support and/or volunteer time)

To submit your project ideas to Garnock Connections simply use our project concept form. Which you can download from the Garnock Connections website (

Completed forms should be returned to the Garnock Connections team either by email to

or by post to:

Garnock Connections,
RSPB Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve,
Largs Road, Lochwinnoch,
Renfrewshire, PA12 4JF

Completed forms must be submitted before the 4th of June 2017.

During June all the submitted project concepts will be considered by the Garnock Connections Steering Group who will select which projects will go through to the next stage. The leaders of those projects which have been successful in making it through to the second stage will then be asked to submit a detailed project plan and budget.

If you have any questions about the form or how your project or group might work with Garnock Connections you can contact the team by emailing or calling 07590 616 388.

Looking forward to hearing all about your project ideas.
