There are often some grants available for developing community spaces. Please take a look here.
You will often need to get some community organisations involved either in setting up the space or just managing it later but if you prove that this is a community resource then it may be easier to get a grant! There are also other website that you can use to find available grants:

Our best advice is to make sure you think about the whole site before you focus down on one element of it. Think about what you want to achieve and contract someone to help you break the space into useable zones. I wouldn’t rely too heavily on one company to do the whole thing with you – this normally narrows the possibilities into what they know and what they can achieve. If you get an independent Landscape Architect or Designer that has a good history of working with schools – you will know that you are getting an independent view without any bias to particular products.
Check our directory for people that have been accredited by us for design and advice services.
Also ensure that you involve the whole school community in the development – if you want the space used, the teachers, pupils, governors etc all need to be involved in shaping it. To take you through a full consultative process of development I would advise purchasing the Workout toolkit. It is a little dated in design and images but the processes are still as relevant today as they were when it was written. For more information click here.
An example of a school that developed a roof top garden is Oaklands School in Old Bethnal Green Road, London E2 6PR. Why not get in touch with them – they may be able to offer some advice!
There are a number of resources you may find useful, such as:
If you are looking for more advice we would recommend bringing in a consultant that can advise you on what needs to be done and suggest planting etc before you hire someone to carry out the actual work. Please have a look at the LTL Online Directory to see if there are any specialists in your area. It may be worth contacting your local Wildlife Trust as they often provide these kinds of services and sometimes even for free if its part of a larger project. You may find this website useful as well.
