HEARING FROM YOU ALL OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS WE REALISE THAT THERE IS STILL A NEED FOR SUPPORT IN THE COMMUNITIES AROUND OUR WIND FARMS AS WE GRADUALLY EMERGE FROM THE PANDEMIC. DOES YOUR COMMUNITY HAVE A NEW IDEA FOR A SUSTAINABLE INITIATIVE THAT WOULD HELP THE LOCAL AREA, ITS PEOPLE AND BUSINESSES GET BACK ON THEIR FEET?
TELL US ABOUT IT FOR THE CHANCE TO RECEIVE UP TO £5000 TO HELP MAKE IT A REALITY.
We’re looking for innovative projects that can really help make a difference to the quality of life in your area as we keep adjusting to life living with Covid19. They can cover anything from education and health and wellbeing to energy sustainability and fighting climate change. And more!
Perhaps you have a great idea for a project which would deliver sustainable mobility while protecting against Covid19; a plan for using digitalisation to enable better business/life/social cohesion; or a need for equipment or training which could spark local entrepreneurial skills or support sustainable businesses. Tell us more in the application form and send it to us with any supporting information by 11 October.
The winners will be announced in Mid November 2021.
