New Fund Offers Support for UK Initiatives to Address E-Waste

Energy, Environment & Climate

31 October 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Virgin Media O2 and Hubbub have launched a £500,000 fund to boost innovation in tackling electronic waste.

Funding is available to UK organisations to support innovative approaches to tackling e-waste, with a focus on small electrical devices.

The £500,000 Time after Time e-waste Fund has been launched by Hubbub Foundation and Virgin Media O2 to support projects in the following focus areas:

  • Projects that prevent e-waste by extending the life of small electrical items, eg encouraging or initiating repair, refreshing and encouraging people to pass on or purchase preloved electricals.
  • Projects that increase recycling rates of small WEEE, eg campaigns focusing on specific items, trialling new recycling schemes, making it easier for people to recycle. This can be part of a wider scheme to reduce waste.
  • Projects that successfully engage young people on circular economy solutions relating to e-waste.
  • Research that will support a reduction in e-waste and extend understanding of how to solve this problem.
  • Projects that focus on education and awareness raising of new or existing solutions.

Applications will be accepted from the following types of UK organisations:

  • Charity.
  • Academic body.
  • Community Interest Company.
  • Social enterprise.
  • Registered company.
  • Local authority.
  • Business Improvement District.

Collaboration is encouraged, and partnership applications are welcomed. The lead applicant for such applications must be a registered body in the UK. Applications are particularly welcomed for projects designed to engage people aged 16-24.

Grants of £10,000 to £75,000 are available, and supported projects must launch by April 2023.

The deadline for Expressions of Interest is 14 December 2022 (17:00 GMT).
