CoRE Legacy Fund

RE-LAUNCHES 1st February 2019 until 30th April 2019

The CoRE Legacy Fund provides grants to support projects in the North East of England that will enable communities to reduce their energy consumption or help them benefit from renewable energy technologies.

The intention is to support North East communities through a wide range of renewable energy or demand reduction projects. This might mean installing equipment, undertaking a feasibility study or training, conservation and reduction of waste energy, education and public engagement work to develop the ability of communities to better manage the generation or use of energy.

Awards of up to £5,000 are anticipated but there is some flexibility depending upon the funds available and the quality of applications. The fund will be flexible and is willing to consider imaginative and innovative projects that may be developmental in nature.

Registered Charities, constituted sports clubs and community groups are eligible to apply as are social enterprises demonstrating clear social and community value. The fund isn’t open to statutory agencies or local authorities and projects must be located in the North East of England as defined in the eligibility document.

The CoRE Legacy fund is supported by income from the community wind turbine on the northern outskirts of Berwick upon Tweed.
