Suez Communities Fund Accepting Applications for Second 2024 Funding Round

Suez Communities Trust is offering grants of between £3,000 and £50,000 for not-for-profit groups across England to deliver projects that make physical improvements to community facilities, or repair buildings of religious worship or buildings of architectural or historic interest.

Funding is available for capital improvement works to public amenity projects for community use. Examples may include:

  • Village hall improvements
  • Nature reserves and conservation
  • Village greens
  • Community centres
  • Public playgrounds
  • Cycle paths
  • Sports fields and facilities
  • Country parks
  • Historic buildings, structures, or sites.

Improvements to places of religious worship will only be considered if they are Grade I designated. Projects to improve other historic buildings, structures or sites must be Grade I, II or II* or have another significant heritage designation, such as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

Projects must be in communities surrounding a qualifying SUEZ Recycling and Recovery site and must be available and open to the public as a minimum for 4 evenings a week, 2 days a week, or 104 days a year.

There is a two-stage application process. Groups must first submit an online Expression of Interest but be invited to submit a full application. There are typically four funding rounds each year.

The next deadline for applications is 15 May 2024.
