Mick George Community Fund


Parts of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire, Norfolk, Rutland, Suffolk, Warwickshire, Norfolk

Total Grants Available:

£800,000 (approximately) per year

Fund Provided by:

Mick George Limited through the Landfill Communities Fund


The Mick George Community Fund provides grants of between £5,000 and £50,000, although it is unlikely that individual grants over £35,000 will be made.

Unless by invitation, organisations can only apply for a grant if their total project cost is less than £100,000.

Courtesy of the recent acquisition by Mick George Ltd of multiple operating facilities to the East of the country, the Mick George Community Fund has expanded its territory to include certain communities that fall within the Norfolk catchment areas.

With immediate effect, the funding will be available to applicants who meet the stipulated criteria across the majority of the East Midlands and Anglian regions. To see whether your project falls within the eligible funding area, please click on the map image below. You can click on the magnifying glass and enter the postcode for your project location to confirm if it is within the boundary (within the blue lines).

If your project falls within the red areas as shown on the map, unfortunately you are not eligible to apply for a grant as you are located further than 10 miles from a Landfill site with a registered permit.

There are four funding rounds each year.

Important Notes

The Mick George Community Fund uses an online application process. Applications in other formats will not, therefore, be accepted.

If your group is not able to complete an online application form due to specific communication requirements, please contact GrantScape so that we can help you with alternative arrangements.

Applications received after a closing date will be automatically submitted to the next funding round, if available.
