What we Fund

SUEZ Communities Trust provides funding awards of up to £50,000 to not-for-profit organisations in England and Scotland. Projects must be eligible under the rules of the Landfill Communities Fund or Scottish Landfill Communities Fund.

The Trust will consider projects which focus on long lasting physical improvements at a specified site or amenity. Funding is typically awarded for the purchase of materials, equipment and the appointment of a contractor to undertake the improvement work. We do not fund staff posts, organisational running costs, training, events, vehicles or projects on school sites.

How to Apply

After reading and understanding the funding criteria an application can be made via the online application system. Funding applications can be started, saved and submitted at any time – there are no application deadlines.

The application process is in two stages:

  1. The stage one application form consists of a short eligibility check followed by some very brief questions. It will be reviewed by the team at SUEZ Communities Trust and a response will be sent by email within 5 working days.
  2. If the stage one application meets the funding criteria we will invite you to submit a stage two application within 12 weeks. The stage two application form asks for more detailed information about the project, including a project budget, and also requires supporting documents to be uploaded.
