Small community grants which make a difference: Veolia’s new funding scheme

Thu 16 Feb 2017

Veolia in Staffordshire will be launching a new scheme in March which offers small amounts of funding (up to £1,000) to local groups.

The EnviroGrant Scheme is a community fund to which not-for-profit local organisations that includes charities, voluntary and community groups, forums, sports teams, societies and schools based in Staffordshire. 

The following types of projects and schemes will be able to apply to the fund but all applications will be considered:

  • Those which contribute to the protection or improvement of the local environment, either via practical action or promotion and education.
  • Those which improve the quality of life for the local community by providing new facilities or improving those already in existence. Groups will be able to apply for grants of up to £1,000 for projects which improve their local environment. Funding for projects can be granted with an environmental/green focus are prioritised, however all applications are considered on their individual merit.

We want this scheme to make a real difference to groups who need additional funding.  For example it could be a local allotment group that needs £500 for a new lawn mower or a parent and toddler group who needs £250 to brighten up their play area.  We would encourage all groups to apply, no matter how small the request is.
