Funding to Tackle Fuel Poverty

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.

Organisations 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
  • Support front line charities who carry out benefits advice to households missing out on financial help that they are entitled to and provide assistance to reduce or cancel debts for household electricity or gas supply, where such assistance is provided as part of a package of measures aimed at providing customers with long-term relief from fuel poverty.

Applications are particularly welcome from charities who work with children, young people and families.

The next deadline for applications is 22nd November 2017.
