Resources and How To Guides

In this section of our website, you can access all of our published 'How To' guides and training resources. These guides and documents have been created to support Environmental Bodies (EBs) in all of their Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) activities and responsibilities. The table shows all of the documents with a brief description of the training resource. You can then click on the orange link under the 'file type' column to access the resource.

If you are looking for the ENTRUST Guidance Manual this is available in the Guidance section of our website. The Guidance section sets out the obligations and responsibilities that EBs must adhere to and this is what compliance is assessed against. The guides below are practical resources to explain how to complete forms or find funding. They also include helpful introductory guides and a handover checklist for when one volunteer or member of staff needs to hand over responsibiliies to another person.

If you still require further advice or support please contact the ENTRUST Helpline by calling 01926 488 300 or email Helpline@entrust.org.uk

FAQs

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

+

Landfill Operators (LOs) in England and Northern Ireland pay Landfill tax to HM Revenue & Customs on every tonne of waste that they dispose of in a landfill site.

The Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) is an innovative tax credit scheme which 'offsets' some of the negative impacts of living in the vicinity of  a landfill site for affected communities.  Under the LCF, LOs in England and Northern Ireland are able to pay a proportion of their Landfill tax liability to not-for-profit organisations which deliver projects for the benefit of communities and the environment in the vicinity of a landfill site in England or Northern Ireland.  In order to receive LCF funds from a LO these not for profit organisations must become enrolled with ENTRUST as Environmental Bodies (EBs).

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. They can also be registered in Wales until 30 September 2019. 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 Landfill Communities Fund (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.
