Environment Trust - Here To Help Community Groups

Published on:


November 2015

Local community groups from across the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Council areas are being encouraged to ask for financial support from the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Environment Trust.

The Environment Trust is keen to support more local groups to implement projects that improve the environment or provide a benefit to both the local community and the general public. In the past projects have included improvements to play areas, community halls, historic and religious buildings, local woodlands and projects aimed at conserving the local native biodiversity.

The Trust operates under both the current UK and new Scottish Landfill Communities Fund schemes. The Trust manages landfill community fund credits raised through the landfilling of municipal waste from both Stirling and Clackmannanshire Councils.

The UK scheme will cease to operate as from March 2017 and the Trust still has funds available to distribute and is keen to consider applications from community groups across the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Council areas. Projects must be in a position to complete no later than 31st January 2017 and the deadline date for the next round of applications is 10th February 2016.

Applying to the Trust is simple, with help and advice available from the Trust's Manager Audrey Morrison on 01786 484611 or by email on
