Concept notes

We will review Welsh concept notes at any time of the year, although we recommend a six month development stage pre submission. Filling in a concept note is the first stage in writing a LIFE application. It is typically a three page summary which helps frame the context of the project and it should be as quantifiable and specific as possible. The concept note helps you frame your thinking and assists the Wales LIFE team to evaluate the eligibility of your proposal for LIFE funding, or point you towards a more suitable funding programme.
