National Energy Action community events grants scheme launched

NEA is running a small grants scheme for organisations to apply to deliver a community event in their local area in support of one of our winter campaigns:

• Fuel Poverty Awareness Day (30 November 2023) or
• The Nation’s Biggest Housewarming (11–15 December 2023)

They are looking for a diverse range of partners to support our campaigns by delivering a householder-focused community event to provide information and advice to help as many vulnerable householders as possible, to prepare for winter and to keep warm and well.

They will support your event by providing a simple slide deck featuring key information for householders who are concerned about their fuel bills. Alongside this, they will send you a pack of leaflets, pens and a digital poster to help promote your community event.

They are offering grants of up to £250 to support your event. The funding must be spent by 29 February 2024. You can use the funds to cover staff time and/or event costs such as room hire and refreshments. We will only accept one application per organisation.

Who can apply?

They are seeking applications from charities, community groups, local authorities and housing associations. Funding is limited and NEA reserves the right to prioritise making awards to smaller, localised organisations who can demonstrate reaching marginalised or under-represented people in their application.
