Veolia London is launching its Recycling Fund for Communities, a new community fund for 2017 designed to support grassroots projects that inspire people to think differently about waste and resources.
The fund can provide a cash boost of up to £1,000 for equipment, materials and even volunteers to help get projects off the ground. It is aimed at the kind of small projects that are popular with and make a difference to London’s many communities. All projects that inspire people to do the right thing with their waste, make use of recycled or reused materials and/or help protect the local environment will be considered with applications for the first round of funding encouraged by 30 April 2017.
The Recycling Fund for Communities is being managed via community crowd sourcing website, SpaceHive, which allows projects to fundraise from multiple targets and attract support from within the community at the same time. It’s simple to set up and you can apply direct to Veolia for funding via www.spacehive.com/movement/veolia.
