Funding opportunities

We are keen to support the activities of local community associations and projects. The Viridor & Prosiect Gwyrdd Community Fund can provide financial support to community initiatives that operate in the Local Authority regions that make up Prosiect Gwyrdd; Caerphilly County Borough Council, City of Cardiff Council, Monmouthshire County Council, Newport City Council and Vale of Glamorgan Council.

Viridor investing in your community

£50,000 will be made available each year from April 2016 for 25-years. This represents the term of the Prosiect Gwyrdd contract for Viridor to handle the treatment of its residual (non-recyclable) waste at the Trident Park Energy Recovery Facility, Cardiff. Funding of projects is awarded on a set of criteria based around sustainability, local need, community involvement, value for money and education.

£50,000 over 25 years

A Panel meets quarterly to review eligible applications to the fund and make the final decision on how  monies from the fund are to be distributed. The day to day administration of the Community Fund is handled by Viridor. How the Funds have been distributed will be reviewed by Viridor’s Governance Committee on an annual basis.
