Severn Trent are really proud to have partnered with Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as its Official Nature & Carbon Neutral Supporter. Together we’ll assist their pledge to leave a carbon-neutral legacy - because when we look after nature, it benefits your water too!
To help maximise the legacy of the partnership, we are 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 any new community project linking to one or more of the following themes - green spaces, recycling and making the most of resources and water saving heroes. Organisations from across the Severn Trent region will be eligible to apply for support for their new project idea.
In March 2022 our independent Community Fund Customer Panel will review and shortlist the projects. The finalists will then go to a public vote in April with successful projects being awarded in May 2022.
They are also holding a number of funding workshops throughout January & February which will take you through more of the detail and you can apply to attend via the link below
