The Veolia Environmental Trust offers grants of up to £75,000 for projects located within the proximity of a qualifying Veolia site in England or Wales. Match funding of at least 20% is required, and applicants requesting grants of £40,000 or more require a Third Party Contribution.
The funding is available for capital improvement projects at a single site with discrete start and end dates.
Projects should fall under one of the following categories:
- Community buildings and rooms, including community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, and Scout or Girlguiding buildings.
- Outdoor spaces, including public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways and cycle-paths.
- Play and recreation, including play areas, skateparks, multi use games areas, sports grounds, pavilions and changing rooms.
Applicants have to be a constituted not-for-profit organisation within the proximity of a qualifying Veolia site. Not all Veolia Environmental Services facilities qualify, potential applicants need to check their postcode using the postcode checker on our website… http://www.veoliatrust.org/funding/ to find out more.
