Cash boost for Solihull groups with eco-friendly projects

Solihull Editorial 13th Apr, 2024   0

CHARITIES, organisations and schools across Solihull can get a cash boost for eco-friendly projects.

Business energy supplier, npower Business Solutions (nBS), has launched a new community fund designed to support projects that help to improve the environment, encourage responsible business and support skills and employment opportunities.

The npower Business Solutions Foundation is open to applications from not-for-profit organisations such as local charities, community interest companies and educational institutions that are located within a 50 mile radius of its office on Princes Way in Solihull.

Projects considered for funding include energy efficiency and carbon reduction measures, waste reduction and recycling initiatives or projects that improve outdoor environments.

Depending on the organisation and nature of the project, three levels of funding bands ranging from £10,000 to £100,000 will be available to apply for.

Anthony Ainsworth, chief operating officer at nBS, said: “We welcome applications from any relevant organisation, from local schools to sports groups to community arts centres to charities, who have struggled to secure funding to turn their plans into reality.

“These could range from improving the sustainability of their premises through energy efficiency, to creating a new space that encourages responsible business or supports wellbeing.”
