We have received a number of bids to the Strategic Waste Fund (SWF) from local authorities which include support for community sector groups in their area. As with any bid to the SWF we will need to ensure that value for money criteria are met before an award is made.

In the meantime groups can apply to the INCREASE Programme for support (www.increase-programme.org.uk) or approach their local authority for assistance.
