The Environment Agency (EA)’s Climate Ready Support Service provided project funding to seven Regional Climate Change Partnerships (RCCPs) through a collaborative agreement with Climate UK, their umbrella organisation. The EA made direct payments to a further two RCCPs, which were hosted by the EA. In total, the Climate Ready Support Service funded projects in nine RCCPs.

The Climate Ready Support Service closed in March 2016 and the EA does not have any official data regarding the RCCPs beyond this point.
