Shetland Islands Citizens Advice Bureau to help cut local carbon emissions

 

Shetland Islands Citizens Advice Bureau have secured a share of £15.3 million made available through the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF).

The CCF is a Scottish Government grant programme, managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful. The CCF provides funding and support for community groups to help tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions.

We have been awarded a grant totalling £108,401 to help households reduce their carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. Project activities will include home energy advice visits, drop-in sessions in local health centres and advice on renewable energy options. The project will also raise awareness of climate change and ways that the local community can take action to help tackle it.

 

The CCF has awarded 1,097 grants totalling £101 million to 658 communities since its introduction in 2008, for projects involving energy efficiency, sustainable travel, local food and resource efficiency. You can find further information at www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/ccf 

 

We are currently getting up and running and will update this page with more detail as soon as possible!
