Changes to Severn Trent Community Fund

Severn Trent have partnered with Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as its Official Nature & Carbon Neutral Supporter.

To maximise the legacy of the partnership, Severn Trent is temporarily refocusing the Community Fund in spring 2022 to specifically support projects that help communities all across the Severn Trent region reduce carbon and care for nature.

Non-profit organisations and local community groups with an income of less than £500,000 (averaged over the last 3 years) will be able to apply for a grant of £5,000, £10,000 or £20,000 to support their new community project linking to one or more of the following themes:

Green Spaces – projects that create and enhance green spaces and offset carbon. e.g., creating natural habitats like ponds or wildflower meadows.

Recycling and making the most of resources – projects that help to reduce the carbon footprint of community spaces and activities, e.g., recycling and energy saving.

Water saving heroes – projects that preserve water and reduce water use, e.g. grey water recycling and rainwater harvesting.

Organisations from across the Severn Trent region will be eligible to apply.
