Substantial funding for non-profits to support vulnerable households

Grants of £10-20k for projects in the WPD’s network area

29 June 2016

Not-for-profit organisations who are working to tackle fuel poverty in the South West, South Wales or the Midlands can apply for a share of a substantial £60,000 funding pot.

CSE will allocate funding on behalf of Western Power Distribution. We’ll also support successful applicants with guidance, training and resources.

“We have years of on-the-ground experience advising householders and are in an excellent position to help other groups to do the same," said James Watt, project manager at CSE. "Successful applicants will receive one-to-one support, tailored to the needs of the project. This might be practical tips, materials like advice leaflets, or connecting them with similar projects."

There are two-tiers of grant:

  • A small grant of up to £10,000 open to all.
  • A large grant of up to £20,000 available to those who can demonstrate a significant scale of activity, over a larger catchment area.

Grants will be awarded to projects that help vulnerable households, such as those in fuel poverty and people with cold-related health problems.

We welcome funding applications for training, outreach, referral systems and other activities that warm homes and cut energy bills.
