WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd)
WREN is a not-for-profit business that helps benefit the lives of people who live close to landfill sites by awarding grants for community, conservation and heritage projects.
WREN has locally based Grant Managers who, together with Grant Administrators, manage all applications and are there to provide you with assistance with your application and, if successful, to help manage your project through to completion.
The local Grant Manager for Conwy is Meleri Jones, who is currently on maternity leave.

Small Grant Scheme/Main Grant Scheme
Both these programmes have now ended. WREN has launched a single community programme to replace them both, simply called the WREN ‘Community Fund’. The application form and guidance notes for the Community Fund are shorter, clearer and I hope easier for the applicants to complete. A copy of the application form and guidance notes is attached for your reference.
Revised maximum grant for the new Community Fund
The maximum grant for the new Community Fund has been set at £50,000.00, a reduction of £25,000.00 from the old Main Grant Scheme maximum grant of £75,000.00. This decision has been taken to reflect the reduction in available funding for 2015 and to ensure that the budget that is available for the Community Fund is sustainable.
