Grants for natural, social or built environment – Veolia Trust

The Veolia Environmental Trust awards grants as part of the Landfill Communities Fund.

Constituted, not-for-profit groups within the vicinity of a qualifying Veolia site, can apply for grants for projects that support the natural, social and built environment.  The type of activities that can be supported include:

  • Community buildings and rooms: such as community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, Scout or Girlguiding buildings
  • Outdoor Spaces: e.g. public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways or cycle-paths
  • Play and recreation: e.g. play areas, skate-parks, Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs), sports grounds, pavilions or changing rooms
  • Projects that support Biodiversity: e.g. the species related element of a BAP (national or local), the habitat related element of a BAP or HAP (national or local), reintroduction programmes to a specific habitat.

The projects must have a total cost of under £250,000 (including VAT and professional costs). Projects must have already secured at least 20% of the total cost by the time they submit their application at the second stage in the process.

The next closing date for stage one applications is 30th May 2019.
