Veolia Sustainability Fund

Veolia is Broadland District Council's recycling, waste and street cleansing partner. Working with Broadland District Council, Veolia launched in August 2022 its Sustainability Fund, which supports inspirational ideas and projects that aim to make a positive change in their local communities.

The fund can support non-profit organisations, community groups or individuals that help transform their local community through enhancing biodiversity, promoting sustainable waste behaviours, protecting or preserving resources and the environment, or using recycled, reused or reclaimed materials.

Projects can apply until 4 November on Veolia's website.

In 2021 Veolia’s Sustainability Fund received over 100 applications and awarded £27,000 worth of funding to 46 grassroot projects up and down the country. Just a few of these projects include:

  • For Good Food - Building a raspberry garden for adults with learning disabilities in Sutton, South London to make and sell jam to local shops to raise money for Nickel Support
  • Upcycle Birmingham - Helping the community to upcycle furniture in Birmingham
  • Camden Beeline - Increasing green space and biodiversity across Camden, North London by creating a connected pollinator pathway of trees, plants and rewilded space.
  • Edible All Souls Church and Cheriton - Growing an edible and sustainable garden in Folkestone, East Kent
  • Leigh on Sea Larder - Setting up a community fridge in Southend-on-Sea

All applications will be considered, but projects should aim to fulfil at least one of the following criteria:

  • enhancing biodiversity;
  • promoting sustainable behaviours (reduce, reuse and/or recycle);
  • protecting or preserving resources and the environment;
  • and using recycled, reused or reclaimed materials.

Shortlisted applications will then be considered for funding by representatives from Veolia and from Broadland District Council.

Applications can be made via Veolia’s website or via Spacehive.
