ENTRUST Training

Entrust has a range of training resources, whether you are looking to enrol with the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) or you have joined an Environmental Body (EB) as a new member of staff, as a volunteer or as a Governing Member (i.e. Director or Trustee). These resources provide organisations and individuals with an overview of how the scheme operates, the role Entrust plays and the obligations placed on organisations that become EBs.

The videos below include 'An Introduction to Entrust' and three project related videos that will help you to better understand the types of projects that can be funded through the LCF under the most commonly applied for Objects within the Landfill Tax (1996) Regulations.

We have a large number of 'How To' Guides and other training resources, such as background briefing documents and guides on how to find funding. We also regularly hold training events for EBs. You can find more information about our training events and guides by clicking on the relevant link on the right hand side of this page.

LCF Online Training Module

We also have an online training module which you can access here. The module covers the basic knowledge required to participate within the LCF, the regulatory requirements surrounding any LCF funding which organisations may have received and the obligations and responsibilities of an enrolled EB. The module takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Q. How does the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) work?


Landfill Operators (LOs) in England and Northern Ireland pay a landfill tax to HMRC for every tonne of waste they dispose of.

The LCF is is a tax credit scheme that helps offset some of the negative impacts of living near landfill sites. Under the schenme, LOs can direct part of their landfill tax to non-profit organisations that run community and environmental projects near these sites. To receive LCF funds directly from an LO, these organisations must enroll with Entrust as EBs. However, most organisations receive funds from funding EBs, which distribute money on behalf of LOs. A list of these funding EBs is available on our website, and enrolment with Entrust is not required when receiving funds from them.

Q. I’m not sure whether my project idea is eligible to receive funding from the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). How do I find out?


Projects can be registered in England or Northern Ireland. Have a look at the Objects page and our Guidance Manual (Part 4: submitting a project) to see if your project idea fits with any of the areas that are eligible for funding. If you need further information contact our Helpline and we will advise you whether your project is eligible or not.

Q. How do we access Entrust funds?


There are no 'Entrust funds'. We are the Regulator of the LCF and we do not provide or distribute funds in any way. You can find out about how to obtain LCF funding from our finding funding page.
