Warwickshire CAVA Engage (South Warwickshire) Event - Severn Trent Community Fund: What it is and how to apply.

Thursday, 27th February 2020, 9.45am - 12.45pm, Tyler House, Tyler Street, Stratford Upon Avon CV37 6TY

Severn Trent Community Fund is a programme that aims to support community wellbeing as well as protect and sustain water and natural resources, within the Severn Trent area. The programme will distribute grants of £2,000 - £250,000 for local initiatives that meet the following aims:

  • People - Projects that facilitate healthier lifestyles and skills development

  • Place - Projects that help create better places to live in and use

  • Environment - Projects that facilitate a healthier natural environment, greater access to that environment or support the preservation of water.

Since they are a water company, they also encourage projects to have a connection to the water cycle in some way. This might mean creating sustainable drainage, installing grey water recycling, creating more water efficient green places (parks, allotments, etc.) or encouraging hydration for health.

There are 3 sizes of grant that can be applied for:

  • £2,000- £10,000 (Organisations applying for more than £10,000 must be registered and provide a minimum of 10% financial match funding)

  • £10,001 – £75,000

  • £75,001 - £250,000

The full criteria and application process is available now on their website - https://www.stwater.co.uk/about-us/severn-trent-community-fund/

The Community Fund officer Sue Heyes will talk you through the fund and application process and there will be an opportunity for you to talk to Warwickshire CAVA staff about the support you need to make effective funding applications.
