Thornhaugh Environmental Association (TEA) was established in 2005 to allocate grants from landfill tax credits arising from the Augean landfill site at Thornhaugh, near Peterborough.This grant programme is now called the Augean Community Fund and is managed by national grantmaking charity GrantScape.
Voluntary representatives from the village of Thornhaugh make up the Association. They meet six monthly to consider new applications and to make recommendations to GrantScape on which projects should receive grants.
The Augean Community Fund supports local authorities and community organisations with projects delivering environmental and community benefits. It gives grants to a wide range of capital projects, which have included construction, extension and refurbishment projects, historic woodland redevelopment and club equipment provision.
Groups with projects within a ten-mile radius of Thornhaugh landfill site may apply for grants, subject to meeting the Augean Community Fund’s eligibility requirements. To find out about these requirements and how to submit an application, please visit GrantScape’s website:
GrantScape is an accredited Environmental Body with the regulator of the Landfill Communities Fund, ENTRUST. The charity gives guidance to TEA on project compliance, registers projects, manages and makes grant payments, and monitors project progress to completion.
