Severn Trent Community Fund

A fund around improving community wellbeing.  

  • People: Projects that help people to lead a healthier life and gain new skills
  • Places: Projects that help to create better places to live in and use
  • Environment: Projects that will help look after our natural environment, give people greater access to that environment or help look after water

And of course, being a water company, naturally they would love to see applications for projects that have a connection to the water cycle too. This might mean creating sustainable drainage, installing grey water recycling or creating water efficient green spaces.

You can apply for a grant if your organisation is not for profit and you have a governing document.

There are three sizes of grant that you can apply for and it is a rolling programme so you can apply at any time of the year :

  • £2,000 to £10,000
  • £10,001 to £75,000
  • £75,001 to £250,000

If you have any events where you would like me to come along and promote the fund please let me know.  I am also running workshops about the fund and the application process as well as 1:1 sessions where applicants can book sometime to talk through their project idea.

If you would like me to run any of these in your area please let me know.  We want to make sure all eligible projects are aware of this new funding opportunity.
