Funding for community groups

Looking for funding for your community project?

Funding for community groups to deliver energy efficiency projects is available from the Scottish Government and other organisations, but sometimes it can be daunting to know where to start. We’ll point you in the right direction.

First, get in touch with our Communities Officer to discuss your project and what might be available to you. We’ll then put you in touch with the right people – it may be one of our advice centres, or another organisation we work with.
