We administer community funds (CF) on behalf of Local Authorities, large scale renewable energy developers including wind farms and solar farms, other renewable energy plants and landfill operators (through the Landfill Communities Fund),

We help corporate organisations set up their CF, no matter what size, where it is located or who it is targeted at. To date, we have successfully established and delivered over 80 separate CFs across England, Scotland and Wales and have given more than £90 million to projects which have helped strengthen local communities and protect the natural environment.
