Local organisations can apply to the SUEZ Doncaster Environment Fund for projects that improve the local natural environment, reduce waste and increase recycling.
In July 2019, SUEZ awarded over £20,000 to green projects in Doncaster. Projects included the development of a wildflower meadow, a community initiative to maintain clean, tidy and safe streets, and another project to develop a community garden.
In 2020, in lieu of being able to run the SUEZ Doncaster Environment Fund as normal, over £15,000 was donated from the Fund to help NHS staff and vulnerable residents in Doncaster during the COVID-19 pandemic. £1,500 was given to ‘For the Love of Scrubs’ project which went towards materials for scrubs and other PPE at Doncaster Royal Infirmary, and over £13,000 was donated to the Doncaster Community Hub to support those suffering hardship during the initial lockdown period.
The application window will re-open in 2021.
Community groups, clubs and schools will be able to apply to either the Smaller Projects Fund (for awards of up to £2,000) or the Larger Projects Fund (for awards of up to £5,000).
The application window has now closed. It will reopen in 2021, please check back for more information.
Further information is available in the 2019 application guide and 2019 financial governance guide. Please note: These documents could change for the 2021 round of funding.
