Landfill Communities Fund – Get up to £100k

Posted on: November 25, 2021

When applying for funding from Enovert Community Trust, it is important to demonstrate how your proposal will benefit your community.

Your application will be more effective if you can outline who will be using your facility, how many members of the community will frequent it, and if you can demonstrate a real need for it in the local area. Letters of support are helpful, as is succinct information about your project, which will enable the Trustees to gauge its impact. To be eligible for funding from the Trust, your organisation must comply with the following guidelines:

  • Non-profit distributing You don’t need to be a charity, but any surplus you make must be used to further your organisation’s objects. Surplus must not be used to pay dividends or other rewards.
  • Available to the general public: Your facility must be available to the general public as much as possible, and no less than four evenings or two days a week, or for more than 104 days in any one year.
  • Located within 10 miles of a landfill site or waste management facility operated by Enovert Management Limited in Kingswinford, Gloucestershire, Southend-On-Sea, South Gloucestershire, Walsall, Colchester or Weston-super-Mare.

Enovert’s Greatness Landfill Site in Sevenoaks is now closed and as a result the Trust has closed to new applications from the Sevenoaks area. Its last funding round for Sevenoaks was 10 September 2021 for a meeting on 19 October 2021.
