Through our Spurness wind farm, we provide £20,000 per year to community and charitable projects. Between 2004 and 2029 we expect to invest £412,500 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; and
- on Sanday.
We can support projects which:
- develop skills and abilities to implement projects that are important to the island’s future;
- support the acquisition, development and use of community assets;
- increase the involvement with local organisations and community activity;
- overcome the barriers that can prevent disadvantaged or excluded members of the community from enjoying a high quality of life, particularly young people and the elderly;
- involve them in caring for the environment and ensuring it is protected for future generations; and
- strengthens the local economy through community-led entrepreneurial 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.
