Energy Saving Trust announces £2.5m funding for charities
The funding from the Energy Redress Scheme has already seen the charity sector provide technology solutions to help those with visual impairments better access their heating controls.
Charities that can offer technology support to vulnerable energy customers are being urged to bid for a share of £2.5m worth of funding.
The money is from the Energy Redress Scheme, which is made up of voluntary payments by energy suppliers that have breached energy regulator Ofgem’s rules, and is being distributed by the Energy Saving Trust.
Charities can apply between October 15 and November 16. Those wanting to apply are being asked to register their interest a full two weeks prior to the application deadline to allow for due diligence to take place.
