Irish Sea funding for Walney fishing communities

Published by FiskerForum, 24-10-2017 · info@fiskerforum.dk

The NFFO has welcomed new funding for projects to support Irish Sea fishing communities. The funding is a mark of the good co-operation that currently exists between the fishing communities that operate in and around the Walney Extension offshore wind farm and the owners of the wind farm, Ørsted (formerly known as DONG Energy).

According to the NFFO, Ørsted has indicated it wishes to further cement these good relations and has voluntarily agreed to donate a £300,000 fund to be used to support fishing community projects specifically within these communities. Independent grant-making, not-for-profit company, West of Morecambe Fisheries Ltd, has been appointed to manage the Fund.

Calls for applications to the fund will be open twice in 2018, initially between 1st January and 28th February 2018, and then between 1st September and 30th November 2018. Further calls for applications will be made in 2019 if the fund has not been fully utilised by the end of 2018.

Forms, instructions on how to apply, eligibility criteria and all terms and conditions can be obtained from the following sources from 1st January 2018. Application forms can be downloaded in pdf format directly from the West of Morecambe Fisheries Ltd website.

Application forms in pdf format can be requested email to you from andy@westofmorecambe.com

Alternatively, an application form can be requested by post from:

PO Box 1395
