SSE Sustainable Development Fund

The Highland Sustainable Development Fund is currently open for applications. The fund is part of the community benefit from onshore renewable energy developments. To be eligible for funding, your project must benefit communities that lie wholly within the Highland Council area. 

You don’t need to be a registered charity to apply, but your organisation must have a constitution (governing document or set of rules)  and not be set up for individual profit. 
If you are unsure if your group is eligible, please contact SSE for advice.

The themes for the fund are as follows and more information is available on the fund guidelines and application form documents which are included below:

• Creating opportunities – increased opportunities for education and employment
• Empowering communities – build resilience and protect vulnerable residents
• Building sustainable places – stimulate meaningful community regeneration
Completed applications should be sent to Marianne Townsley by 12 Noon on Wednesday 31 January 2018.
