The Merseyside Recycling & Waste Authority and Veolia Community Fund 2020-21 has launched

£165,000 is available for Liverpool City Region community and voluntary groups, schools and not-for-profit organisations. MRWA are looking for schemes which can reduce household waste, encourage recycling and resource re-use and prevent carbon emissions. Projects will also have to demonstrate wider positive impacts on the environment, health and education.

Successful applicants can be awarded up to £30,000 for schemes which operate across Merseyside and Halton. Between £1000 and £8,000 is available for projects which work solely at one local authority level.

Using the power of data to help address homelessness in the UK

A new tool which aims to give insight into the conditions required to tackle homelessness has been launched by the Centre for Homelessness Impact and the Office for National Statistics. Bringing together data relating to the wide range of factors that have an impact on homelessness, the tool will help people to take a broad view and address the root causes of the problem, not just the symptoms. It will also allow policy makers and charities to measure the country’s progress towards preventing homelessness at a population level.
