Very happy to confirm that we are one of 15 charities from across the UK to be awarded funding from the Energy Redress Scheme. The Scheme (officially named ‘The Energy Industry Voluntary Redress Fund’) collects voluntary payments from energy companies to redress harm caused to energy consumers. It is administered by Energy Saving Trust, and aims to distribute available funds to support energy consumers in vulnerable situations and the development of products or services which would provide a benefit for certain groups of energy consumers.
It was a competitive round, with over 75 applications being received, seeking a total of over £14 million . We were one of five successful Scottish projects to be awarded. The grant of £183,700 make a significant and welcome dent in the final total we are working to secure for our Heat Network.
