Veolia, in partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council, announces 17 grant awards to local community groups


Veolia, the UK’s leading waste and resource management company, is providing Envirogrant funding as part of its partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council to support projects that benefit the environment or community.


The Wrockwardine Parish Allotment Society has been awarded a grant to link in with local schools to share knowledge and help children to grow food. Meanwhile the Madeley Community Orchard will be creating a space for reflection, to promote better wellbeing. A further 15 inspiring projects are being supported including an educational allotment, recycled benches and a woodwork project.


Steve Mitchell, Regional Director for Veolia said: 

EnviroGrant is a hugely beneficial part of the Added Value element of our contract with Telford & Wrekin Council and directs funds straight into the local community. Since 2014, Veolia has given more than £200,000 to benefit local community projects and initiatives through the Added Value scheme. It’s great to be able to support so many local groups delivering ecological transformation on the ground.”


Councillor Lee Carter, Telford & Wrekin Council Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood, Commercial Services and Regeneration, said: 

“EnviroGrant is a great example of how we work with our partners to create a better borough. These grants give local people the opportunity to make a real difference in their community and neighbourhood. I’m pleased to see such a wide range of groups and projects successfully applying for funding this year.”
