Viridor is wholly committed to the local area and to delivering further community benefits.

Funding opportunities

A community fund of an initial £250,000 has been established for local community projects. This will be followed by annual payments of £25,000 for the 25 years of the contract. An additional lump sum payment of £100,000 (index linked) will be made available by the end of 2024.

We are keen to support the activities of local community associations and projects.

The Beddington Community Benefit Funding 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.
