Grants of up to £5k to bring your green ideas to life

Do you need funding for a project that will reduce carbon emissions and support a green recovery in Telford and Wrekin?

Grants of up to £5k are available to community groups, faith groups, friends groups, schools, and local councils and grants of up to £2.5K to small businesses with a green idea to help reduce their carbon footprint

The Telford and Wrekin Climate Change Fund is a sustainable initiative being offered by Telford & Wrekin Council as part of its commitment to be carbon neutral by 2030, with the aspiration for the borough to be carbon neutral by then too.

Cllr Carolyn Healy is leading the rallying call for applications. She said: “We can all do something that makes a difference and if you have got an idea about how you can reduce your carbon footprint, this funding is here to help you with that.”

Applications for grants are invited for a range of carbon reducing ideas, such as:

  • Renewable energy generation – solar PV panels, hydro turbines, ground or air source heat pumps
  • Energy efficiency measures – LED lighting, loft insulation, water conservation, upgrading heating systems, lighting or heating controls, double/triple glazing
  • Sustainable travel – cycle stands, electric bikes, EV charging points
  • Reducing waste – re-use initiatives, community composting, reduce single use plastic

Small or large, your green ideas can have a big impact.

Deadline for applications is noon on 19 April 2021.
