I am not sure how relevant to us this will be, but I have been sent it so am passing it on.
The Chesshire Lehmann Fund is a new research fund aiming to support young academics and community groups wishing to undertake active research or evaluation into the relationship between fuel poverty and energy efficiency.
The Fund is open to applicants across England (although applications from the North West and South East regions are particularly welcome).
There are two funding streams:
- Research – applicants can apply for a maximum of £5,000
- Community action – community groups and not-for-profit organisations can apply for up to £2,000 for a researcher or academic institution to assist with evaluation work
