The UK National Contact Point  - What we do



JNCC took on the UK LIFE National Contact Point service from 01 January 2016. We provide a free and confidential support service for the LIFE Programme in the UK on behalf of Defra (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) and the Devolved UK Administrations. Our service will include a helpline, pre-screening of proposals for eligibility and fit and advice on administrative and contractual issues. Below is a summary of some of the services that we will provide.

Concept note

Please download the concept note template and return it to us via email to enable us to evaluate the eligibility of your proposal. We are happy to review notes at any time of the year.


Pre-screening of proposal

The deadline for pre-screening of draft proposals was the 27th June. However we will accept pre-screening requests after this date. However we will read the draft proposals on a first come, first served basis and so encourage early submission.


A8 Process

All Nature and Biodiversity projects need a signed letter of support from the relevant Competent Authority (i.e. Defra, Welsh Government, Scottish Government or NI). If you are planning to submit a project under this strand and have not yet requested an A8 form please contact us immediately.
