Through our Drumderg wind farm, we provide around £79,000 per year to community and charitable projects. Over the life of the fund we expect to invest £1.6 million 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:

  • Mount Blair (most of Strathardle and Glenshee) and 
  • Alyth 

The fund generally supports projects which:

  • The Fund aims to promote community spirit and bring people together; 
  • enhance quality of life and promote people's well-being; and
  • foster vibrant, sustainable communities.

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.
