Local Community Project Fund

Environmental Grant

Local Community Projects support a community of interest and offer grants towards projects, trips, activities and equipment. Environmental grants aim to improve peoples lives by improving their environments. See the grants section for more information

In 2016, we launched our Environmental Grants Programme funded by the 5p levy on carrier bags donated to us by Greggs plc. Over the last two years, this has enabled us to fund hundreds of fantastic projects which aim to improve the environment and also benefit the wider community.  

In 2019, we plan to use the funds to deliver larger nationwide projects with some of our key partners which we believe will make a greater impact on both the environment and the communities in which we operate.  Therefore, Round 3 will be our last round of funding under this Programme.  

Round 4 is now open for applications, closes 18th September with decisions on 6th November 2018
