VCSE Energy Efficiency Scheme

Voluntary, community and social enterprise VCSE organisations, delivering frontline services or operating a hub that delivers multiple frontline services, can apply to a new Government fund of £25.5 million for support in improving the energy efficiency of their building.

Applications open now for:

  • the cost and delivery of an independent energy assessment (IEA) to identify how to reduce bills
  • organisations with an energy assessment may then be eligible to apply for a capital grant of £2,000 – £150,000 to install the recommended energy efficiency measures. There will be three capital grant rounds with applications opening in early January 2024, mid April 2024 and early July 2024.

Priority to organisations with a turnover of under £1 million a year, directly supporting individuals and communities with critical needs, particularly those related to the rising cost of living such as: services addressing poverty (e.g. by providing food, warmth, emergency supplies or personal grants); shelter, accommodation and housing for those most in need; advice services for people experiencing financial, housing or legal challenges; services that address specific physical and mental health issues (such as disability, addiction and dementia); education, training and employment services that improve employability; community hubs or centres, out of which a number of these services operate. Applications are currently being accepted for an Independent Energy Assessment.  Go to VCSE Energy Efficiency Scheme – Groundwork
