Landfill Communities Fund Design and Management
GrantScape specialises in providing grant-making solutions through the design and delivery of top quality, cost-effective grant programmes under the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF).
Our team has many years’ experience of working with Landfill Operators wishing to support the communities that live near their operations. To date, we have successfully established and delivered over 30 community funds across England and Wales, giving over £70M in LCF grants to these communities.
Since 2009, we have held accredited status with ENTRUST the regulator of the LCF. This means that our Landfill Operator clients can be confident that GrantScape’s governance and control arrangements, and the systems and procedures we use when managing your donations, are of the highest standard.
The benefits – how we can help you
If your organisation is seeking to benefit local communities around its operations, GrantScape is very well placed to help. Our service to you is free because our fee comes out of your LCF donation and we will collect and return your 10% tax liability from independent contributors. We will also ensure the projects you support leave no long-term liabilities.
We will also help by:
- Designing a grant programme under the Landfill Communities Fund to meet your specific objectives and branding requirements
- Promoting your organisation’s involvement and community support
- Managing the entire grant application process, using our tried-and-tested online, paper-free system which our applicants have consistently confirmed to be very user-friendly
- Monitoring levels of interest in your fund to ensure sufficient applications are received
- Establishing an independent advisory panel to obtain relevant local input into the decision making process
- Administering all aspects of grants that are awarded, including payments and progress monitoring
- Providing professional support to applicants throughout the process, from start to finish
- Keeping you informed of changes to the Landfill Communities Fund
