Check your project's eligibility
To be eligible for a grant from the Severn Trent Community Fund, the organisation must be a registered not for profit, and the project you would like funding for must benefit Severn Trent customers.
What we can fund
Defining a Severn Trent customer
A Severn Trent customer is somebody who receives their water supply from us, or whose waste is taken away and treated by us. This may not necessarily mean you receive your bill from us. Check services in your area.
Location of projects we can fund
To be eligible to apply for the Fund, both the location of your project and its beneficiaries must be located within the Severn Trent region.
Our region stretches from Scunthorpe in the north, to Stroud in the south, and from Oakham in the east to Llanidloesin the west.
If you’re not sure if your project is eligible, you can check whether your project is in our region using WaterUK water supplier finder.
What we can’t fund
We’re unable to support political or religious causes, however we will consider religious organisations if projects are for wider community benefit and not faith based.
We can’t provide funding for permanent water fountains. However, we will be able to support a limited number of community events with temporary plastic-free water, through temporary water fountains, to a limited number of public events each year as part of our plastic-free water pledge. This can include marathons, carnivals and sporting events.
Unfortunately, you cannot apply for more funding from us if you have already received funding from us for the same project.
Please see our guidance document (PDF) for a full list of ineligible costs.
