Welcome to WREN
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund and Scottish Landfill Communities Fund.
WREN was established in 1997 and since then has provided over £200m to more than 7,000 community and environmental projects throughout the UK.
WREN currently operates two funding programmes
The FCC Community Action Fund is for applicants with projects in England and Wales situated within 10 miles of an FCC Environment landfill site. Applications for funding can be made via our new online application system.
From 1 April 2015 landfill tax generated in Scotland is collected and managed differently and as a result the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund (SLCF) replaced the UK scheme as at that date. Applicants in Scotland wishing to apply for funding must apply to the FCC Scottish Action Fund.
The next deadline for both programmes is Wednesday 28 September 2016.
