Apply for Funding

Viridor Credits runs three funding schemes in England and Wales, and one in Scotland.

Small Grants Scheme

The Small Grants Scheme is for Community, Heritage and Biodiversity projects that require up to £20,000 from Viridor Credits.

Main Grants Scheme

The Main Grants Scheme is for Community, Heritage or Biodiversity projects that require £20,001-50,000 from Viridor Credits.

Large Grants Scheme

The Large Grants Scheme is Viridor Credits' biggest funding band and the most competitive. This scheme is for Community, Heritage or Biodiversity projects that require £50,001-100,000 from Viridor Credits. 

Scottish Landfill Communities Fund

Funding is available in Scotland for applications up to £50,000. 

How do I apply?

Check the availability of funding in your area by using our Postcode Checker  and submit the Stage One Form to one of our Grants Officers. You will receive a response within five working days confirming whether your project meets Viridor Credits' Eligibility Criteria.

Once you have received confirmation of eligibility from Viridor Credits, please read the Guidance Notes for Applicants prior to completing Stage Two of the online application form. Stage Two must be submitted prior to the closing date for your region.

Due to the short timescales of this scheme, any permissions relating to the project works, such as planning permission or faculty, must be in place prior to application to the Small Grants Scheme. 

Incomplete Application Forms

Any application that is not complete or that has any issues after the closing date will not be considered at the following meeting. You are strongly advised to submit your Stage 2 application far in advance of the closing date to ensure that any issues with your application can be resolved before the closing date.
