NCVS is hosting this 'Meet the Funder' event to help you assess if Severn Trent Community Fund could support your group / organisation, and how to apply to the fund. Join Sue Heyes from Severn Trent and Pauline Dorey, NCVS Group Development Officer, to learn how to make the best of this funding opportunity.
Sue says, about Severn Trent Community Fund:
"Our customers, and the communities we live and work in, are at the heart of everything we do. And that's why, from 2020, we are giving away more than £10 million over the next five years to support new projects by local charities and community groups in the Severn Trent region - helping to make a real and tangible difference in our communities."
The fund aims to support project that fit one or more of the following aims:
- People: Projects that help people to lead a healthier life and gain new skills
- Places: Projects that help to create better places to live in and use
- Environment: Projects that will help look after our natural environment, give people greater access to that environment or help look after water
