We want to help empower communities and fund projects that deliver real benefits to their areas. A wide range of projects are considered for funding each year including new and innovative ideas. We have some guidance on who and what is eligible for funding, but if you have any questions please get in touch.

You can apply for a grant if you are:

  • A legally-constituted community group
  • A non-profit organisation
  • A registered charity

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
