Renewi Environmental Grants

20th February 2019

The Renewi (formerly Shanks) Corporate Social Responsibility Fund supports groups surrounding the BDR waste treatment facility at Manvers to improve their environment through volunteer time and/or financial funding.

Community, voluntary or environmental groups, charities, not-for-profit organisations and education groups can apply to the fund.

If they are within two miles (as the crow flies) of the Manvers facility, up to £3,000 a year is up for grabs.

Groups based further away but still in the Barnsley, Doncaster or Rotherham council areas can apply for up to £1,000.

Projects can apply for 90 per cent funding, with groups providing ten per cent matched funds.

Groups can apply for up to 30 hours per year of volunteer time to support their schemes, providing where possible they match the volunteer hours.

Closing Dates

Applications for volunteer time only will be assessed on a quarterly basis with application closing dates of 28th February, 30th April, 31st July and 31st October, annually.

Applications for funding only or funding and volunteer time can be made up until the close of applications at 23:59pm on Thursday 28th of February.
