The Scottish Power Energy People Trust funds registered charities that help people whose lives are affected by fuel poverty. Projects aimed at alleviating fuel poverty:
Priority will be given to projects aimed at helping families with young children and young people.
The Scottish Power Energy People Trust will award funding at levels appropriate to the type of project and the number of people to be helped, from small sums up to a maximum of £50,000.
Projects may be funded for a maximum of three years, but the maximum amount of £50,000 applies, regardless of the timescale of the project.
It is a condition of funding that all projects, with the exception of research, include the provision of energy efficiency advice and/or home energy efficiency measures, to ensure enduring benefits in terms of fuel poverty reduction.
Please note that all projects must address fuel poverty explicitly and as the primary purpose (not just as an add- on).
We accept applications for funding from charities registered with the Charity Commission or Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) for projects aimed at alleviating fuel poverty. Applications are particularly welcome from charities who work with children, young people and families.
You can apply for funding using the online application form. Completed applications should be submitted online before the application deadline for each Trustees' meeting (see details below).
