Our activities in communities all over the UK

Eight hands on top of each other.

The renewable energy projects which we own, operate and are partners in have been supporting the long-term development of their neighbouring areas through community funds for over 20 years.

Our community funds are set up to meet the needs of their local area and usually take the form of an annual payment which is available each year of the operational lifetime of a project.

We aim to put the decision making in the hands of local representatives – so local people can take responsibility for how their community is supported.

Why is community benefit funding different?

  • It is tailored to your community – every community is different and we take a bespoke approach to setting up funds
  • It is long term – for up to 25 years allowing communities to plan for the future
  • It comes from the private sector – so can be used to secure even more match funding
  • It is simple – making it easy to access, with less bureaucracy than many funding options
  • It is flexible funding, at source– in terms of:

    • Who it could support;
    • What it could fund;
    • Ways it could be delivered.
  • It can be tailor made – bespoke structures and criteria can be developed for each community
  • It puts communities at the heart of decision making – giving local people more control over their communities’ future.
