Funding to help VCSE organisations improve energy efficiency – second part of scheme now open

On 7 December 2023, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport launched a £25.5 million funding package to help voluntary, community, and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations in England improve their energy efficiency.

Eligible organisations will be able to apply for an independent energy assessment and capital grants to install energy efficiency measures.

The second part of the scheme opened on 18 January and organisations can apply through three grant rounds, the last of which will close in August 2024. All measures will need to be installed and paid for by March 2025, so all organisations, but particularly those with more complex projects, are encouraged to apply early to ensure sufficient time for the installation of measures.
