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:
- Improve home energy efficiency through draught proofing, insulating and or other practical measures
- Support front line charities that 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.
Previous projects supported include:
Regenda Ltd which received a grant of £5,340 to provide energy efficiency and financial advice to households in fuel poverty by inviting households to participate in a 3-month energy challenge, competing against their neighbours to make the largest reductions to their energy bills.
The next deadline for applications is the 3rd February 2015.
