The Western Riverside Environmental Fund (WREF) has provided grants to environmental projects in the boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, Lambeth and Wandsworth since 1999.
To date, over £4 million has been awarded to over 230 projects.
The fund, which is a partnership between the Western Riverside Waste Authority and Groundwork UK, utilises landfill tax credits arising from waste handled by the Authority's waste transfer stations at Smugglers Way, Wandsworth and Cringle Dock, Battersea. Cory Environmental also makes contributions to the fund.
Projects that have received WREF funding include improvements to communal areas around housing estates, works within parks and green spaces, green roofs and educational facilities. Further case studies can be found here.
The final round of WREF funding has now been awarded and there will be no further rounds.
