TCE launch Community Fund

TCE launch Community Fund 

This year is a big year for the Tata Chemicals Europe and British Salt family as it marks 150 years of chemical manufacturing in Northwich! Back in 1873 John Brunner and Ludwig Mond built Winnington Works in Northwich, and a year later the first soda ash was produced. We’re proud of our rich history, none of which would be possible without the amazing communities that grew up around our plants across West Cheshire.

To celebrate our 150 years and to thank the local communities that have been a key part of our history we have been busy behind the scenes on a really exciting project. We can finally announce that our Community Fund has now launched! The fund is our way of helping local communities beyond providing employment for people, products and services and is an opportunity for local community focused charities, educational bodies, not-for-profits and individuals to benefit from some financial support from TCE.

What exactly is the Community Fund?

Simply put, the Community Fund is our way of providing both financial support and hands-on help from TCE volunteers into local initiatives. Each organisation can apply for up to £500 to help fund community orientated projects, events or services.

Who can apply?

We are welcoming applications from the following:

  • Registered charities
  • Not-for-profits
  • Educational bodies
  • Organisations that support schools and colleges (especially in STEM)
  • Individuals involved in raising funds for or in support of charitable or educational, environmental or societal benefit

Who can’t we help?

Sadly, we won’t be able to consider projects or work that has already taken place or applications from the excluded groups detailed in the schemes terms and conditions.

How can I apply?

Applying for funding couldn’t be simpler and you have until 31st January so get that application in!

Fill out this form and tell us all about you, what your organisation or initiative is all about and what you’re planning to use our funding for. Whether you’re prepping a fundraiser, planning a careers day or building a sensory garden we want to hear all about your project.

Fill in the form to apply:

How often can I apply?

You can only apply for funding once a year. However, if you’re initiative or business isn’t chosen then feel free to apply again!

Who do I contact if I have any questions?

Hopefully we’ve covered off most of your questions but if you’ve still got some lingering make sure you check out our Community Fund hub. Still got questions? Contact Pauline Yould on
