Back in January Severn Trent launched their new Community Fund, giving grants from £2,000 – £200,000 to support new community wellbeing projects by local charities and community groups in our region. The fund is overseen by an independent panel which is made up of Severn Trent’s customers, who review applications on a quarterly basis and decide how the money is spent.
Since the fund launched, they have seen a huge amount of interest and as one of the few funders that are currently open to non-Covid 19 related projects, it’s been a very busy few months. However, they have found that the number of applications received from Shropshire has been relatively low when compared to other counties in their region.
It’s really important to Severn Trent that the Community Fund money is spread fairly across their customer base and the counties they supply, so please do pass on this information and click on the link below to find out more if you are aware of local initiatives that could benefit.
