What we fund

We can fund improvements to your office, community building or other charitable space that have been recommended by an Eco Audit or Refresher Eco Audit carried out by one of our approved consultants.

We can only fund such work where the total refurbishment costs do not exceed £15 million.

Works can include (but not necessarily limited to):

  • insulation

  • solar panels

  • heat pumps

  • on-site biodiversity schemes

  • energy efficient lighting systems

We can consider capital funding of up to £150,000 towards greening improvements.

When you apply for capital funding to green your building, you’ll be asked to:

  • confirm your building and its activities benefit the wider community and does not exclusively advance the promotion of any of specific religion

  • confirm the building is owned by your organisation or has a lease of over 10 years

  • provide evidence of an Eco Audit completed within the last three years, or of a current Refresher Eco Audit, that recommends the works for which you are seeking funding
