EnviroGrant Scheme

  • Does your group or society make a positive difference to your environment and/or community within Telford and Wrekin?
  • Would your group or society benefit from financial support in order to continue the good work you do in your local community?

If you answer ‘yes’ to these questions, then Veolia might be able to help with their EnviroGrant scheme. Grants are available to community groups for projects  that benefit the local community or environment.

What is the EnviroGrant Scheme and who can apply?

The EnviroGrant funding scheme is run by recycling contractor Veolia in conjunction with Telford and Wrekin Council; it is part of the added value brought to the borough by Veolia.

EnviroGrant gives grants of up to £1000 for projects that benefit the local community or the environment, This could be projects that improve or protect  the local environment  through practical action or education, projects that improve the quality of life for the local community by providing or improving facilities and resources.

The fund is aimed at projects requiring up to £1,000. There is a limited amount of money available and consequently applications can only be made to the scheme once per calendar year. Funding can be granted for a variety of projects and activities including promotion and marketing, education and awareness raising, practical equipment and running costs.

Funding is at the discretion of Veolia. The amount granted will be paid directly to your organisation by cheque.

To apply, groups must be properly constituted not-for-profit organisations in the borough of Telford and Wrekin. Full terms and conditions can be found on the information leaflet.
