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 other practical measures, amongst other categories.
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 and 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.
