About Us

Severn Trent Community Fund:

Maximising the legacy of our Official Nature and Carbon Neutral partnership with Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

We’re really proud to have partnered with Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games as its Official Nature & Carbon Neutral Supporter

Together we’ll assist their pledge to leave a carbon-neutral legacy - because when we look after nature, it benefits your water too! 

Our Community Fund is giving away more than £10million over 5 years to support new projects by local charities and community groups in the Severn Trent region.

To maximise the legacy of the Games and our environmental partnership, Severn Trent Community Fund is looking for new projects that reduce carbon and help communities care for nature.

And we need your help! All of our wonderful customers will get the chance to vote for their favourite projects in spring 2022.

Explaining the key themes

Our key themes focus on improving green spaces, recycling and saving water.

Severn Trent Community Fund Awards

There are multiple awards available for each funding pot.

Projects chosen by customers

Our independent Customer Panel will decide on a final shortlist of projects.  

Those finalists will feature in a public vote, so you decide which projects get funding.
