Funding to Tackle Fuel Poverty (UK)

The Scottish Power Energy People Trust has announced that its grants programme is open for applications.
The Trust provides grants to registered charities for projects that address fuel poverty. Registered charities can apply for grants of up to £50,000 for projects that:
  • Provide energy efficiency advice
  • Improve home energy efficiency through draught proofing, insulating and or other practical measures
  • Carry out benefits advice to households missing out on financial help that they are entitled to through welfare benefits and tax credits and provide assistance to reduce or cancel debts for household electricity or gas supply.
Applications are particularly welcome from charities who work with children, young people and families.
Previous projects supported include:
Telford & The Wrekin CAB which received a grant of £49,887 to employ a part time energy efficiency/income maximisation adviser. The adviser would provide one-to-one advice and support for individuals and families referred by any of the agencies within the network.
The deadline for applications is the 17th May 2016.
