Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

Following the success of the first round of the Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund, Hampshire County Council has launched a second round of funding.

The fund is open to:

  • Community, neighbourhood or voluntary groups
  • Registered Charities
  • Schools, colleges and universities
  • Not-for-profit organisations (including social enterprises)
  • Businesses with fewer than 250 employees, i.e. small and medium sized enterprises
  • Faith groups delivering community work
  • Parish Councils

The funding will support new Waste Prevention activities that reduce household waste such as, but not limited to, educational activities on home management such as cooking, food preparation and storage, sewing and growing your own food or community events like repair cafes, swap events, upcycling classes and tool or toy libraries.

Grants are available for up to £5,000 and there is no minimum amount available.  Full details of what is and isn’t funded, as well how to apply for funding are available from:
