Funding from the Scottish Power Energy People Trust

10-May-2017

 

The Scottish Power Energy People Trust are again making a call for applications from voluntary and charity groups that are helping less fortunate people who are on low incomes, and whose lives are affected by fuel poverty.

Formed in 2005, The Scottish Power Energy People Trust funds charitable organisations that help people whose lives are affected by fuel poverty.

Grants of up to £50,000 are available to grassroots organisations that help people who are on low incomes, live in poor housing or suffer ill health, and whose lives are affected by fuel poverty.

Charitable organisations can apply for funding to support schemes and ventures that provide:

Energy Efficiency Advice

It is a condition of funding that all projects include the provision of energy efficiency advice. Energy advisors should be trained to City and Guilds standard.

Energy Efficiency Measures

Projects that improve home energy efficiency; this can be through draught proofing, insulating and or other practical measures.

Income Maximisation

The Trust will provide funding to projects and front line charities that carry out benefits advice, to households missing out on financial help that they are entitled to, through welfare benefits and tax credits.

Fuel Debt Assistance

Schemes or projects run by charities or similar groups who provide help, or funding the provision by other persons of assistance, to reduce or cancel debts for household electricity or gas supply, where this help comes as part of a package of measures aimed at providing customers with long-term relief from fuel poverty.

Groups can also be providing any combination of the above, the Trust are especially interested in hearing from projects aimed at helping families with young children and young people.

Decided upon on a periodic basis, the deadline for applications this season is 24th May 2017, with additional dates to be announced later in the year.
