the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.

Collective Power Fund

This fund aims to support environmental initiatives based around energy conservation, although it will also support other 'green' projects and activities.

The Collective Power Fund invites local voluntary and community groups to apply for funding of between £500 and £1,000, to tackle a range of environmental issues.

Focusing on using energy more efficiently and taking care of the environment, for example:

  • Replacing old lighting and installing energy efficient LED lighting in community buildings
  • Insulation costs in community buildings
  • Developing new green spaces, (such as tree planting on a former brown field site, or creating a wildflower meadow outside a community centre).
  • Contribution towards larger solar power installation costs
  • Supporting the costs of training courses, to help community groups who want to develop their energy efficiency and/or environmental ideas (e.g. training as an Energy Heroes Leader to promote and instigate good energy practice)

Please get your applications in quickly. The deadline is Friday 9 October.
