Funding and finance

There is currently grant funding available for Green Open Homes events in the West of England Combined Authority area only. However, we do have a list of grants and loans for local groups on our website, some of which may be applicable for finding funding for your event. See: www.cse.org.uk/my-community/funding-for-community-energy-projects/

If you want to speak to someone about setting up a Green Open Homes event, email us at communities@cse.org.uk or give us a call on 0117 934 1400 (this is the switchboard at the Centre for Sustainable Energy, so ask to speak to the community engagement team about Green Open Homes).

In the meantime, check out these resources on securing funding and sponsorship:
