We support communities near to our UK operations in a number of ways, through activities that meet community needs or address particular issues, often based on their suggestions. Our contribution to communities’ ranges from providing grants to local charities to supporting projects that help reduce crime in the area.

Grants for community groups that are local to our operations

‘Community grants’ of up to £1,000 are available to groups in the communities where we operate, namely our sites in Aberdeen city, Mossmorran in Fife, St Fergus near Peterhead, and Bacton on the Norfolk coast. These grants are available for both ongoing projects and for the sponsorship of events.

If you qualify your group being active or the project or event will have an impact in the community locations above, please download an application form. You will be asked to specify one of the communities listed above.

As this is a community initiative and we target the grants to benefit our neighbours, we regret we do not extend this offer beyond the communities where we operate, and we cannot process applications that do not meet the location criteria.

Shell UK has other social investment programmes that are active outside these areas where we operate.
