Clyde borders

Through our Clyde wind farm, we provide around £125,000 per year to community and charitable projects. Over the life of the fund we expect to invest around £3m in local projects.

You can apply for a grant if you are:

  • a legally-constituted community group;
  • a non-profit organisation; or
  • a registered charity.

For the benefit of the community council areas of:

  • Upper Tweed;
  • Tweedsmuir; and
  • Skirling.

This fund generally supports projects which:

  • enhance quality of life for local residents;
  • contribute to vibrant, healthy, successful and sustainable communities; and
  • promote community spirit and encourage community activity.

Sorry, we can’t support projects which:

  • have a political or religious purpose;
  • subsidise the costs of energy consumption;
  • are for purposes adverse to SSE’s interest;
  • replace statutory funding; or
  • support individuals for their personal gain.
