When it comes to the communities that we live and work in, our first commitment is to ensure energy supplies are safe and reliable. We also provide real, practical support which we hope will bring lasting benefit to communities in a number of ways.

Employee volunteering

SSE is proud to support charities, orgainsations and schools, giving our time and skills to help our local communities.

Can we help you?

Community funds

We have established a new community investment policy and, if our planned wind farms get the go-ahead, during their lifetime we expect to invest a total of over £240 million in local and regional community projects.

At SSE we take our responsibility to inspire young people about sustainable energy use and spreading the messages around electrical safety very seriously.. We have dedicated pages on our website and we hope that you find the resources available online useful if you are a teacher, parent, group leader or young person.
