About the Trust
The Trust has the responsibility of distributing the funds associated with the Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre (CERC). Funded by both Cornwall Council and Suez(Sita UK), the Trust receives £200,000 a year during the construction period and around £100,000 per year during the operational life of the CERC. The Trust is made up of six parish Councillors and seven local resident trustees, they have a sound working knowledge of the local community and its needs. All Trustees are voluntary members of the Trust and as such receive no remuneration from the fund whatsoever.
Aims of the Trust
To support projects and individuals who live in the area of benefit. Support is mainly in the form of grants. The trust can provide revenue or capital for projects, but prefers to support project costs rather than the core costs of running an organisation. It will, however, fund a reasonable proportion of running costs associated with a project that it is supporting.
To offer information and advice to applicants to assist them in planning and delivering projects that will make a positive impact to the people.
To be a model grant maker and achieve maximum benefit from the funds the trust invests
