Enovert Community Trust (formerly Cory Environmental Trust in Britain) is an environmental body which supports community and environmental projects.

The Trust awards grants under the terms of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF), providing funding to a broad range of projects that have as big an impact on the community as possible. 

The Trust is committed to supporting community and environmental projects across the UK. These include improving community halls, the creation of new play areas and skate parks, and restoring green spaces.

If you have a project or an idea for a project, please call Trust Secretary, Angela Haymonds, on 01753 582513 to check whether your project would be eligible and for guidance on putting your application together. Alternatively, please click Apply for funding for details of the application process.

Enovert’s Shortwood Landfill Site to the east of Bristol is now closed and as a result the Trust has closed to new applications from the Bristol/South Glos area following its October 2022 meeting. Sevenoaks, St Helens, the London Borough of Bexley, Wrexham and Swansea, are no longer covered by the Trust following the closure of waste management facilities, a change in ownership or devolution of the landfill tax in Wales.
