What we do

We support and encourage rural communities to develop, so they can influence their own futures and secure a range of community facilities and services.

There are around 11,000 rural communities across Britain ranging from small hamlets to bustling market towns, all with their own individual character and economy. However, rural communities now find themselves at a cross-roads and action is essential in order to generate more sustainable communities and lifestyles, offering a better quality of life for all who live in the countryside, not just the affluent who can afford to live there.

With global pressures such as climate change, an ageing population and long lasting constraints on public spending, it is time to generate a new vision for our rural communities that delivers better services in different ways. Only then can we provide for the needs of both current and future generations that live, work and play in the countryside.

Community Partnering Fund

Grants of up to £20,000 available for community organisations in the north of England. Northern Powergrid has opened its annual Community Partnering Fund for the fifth year and has expanded it with allocations of up to £20,000 now available to community groups and grassroots organisations based in the North of England. Delivered in partnership with Leeds Community Foundation, the Community Partering Fund helps local organisations to deliver schemes which tackle issues that support Northern Powergrid’s commitment to assisting communities, beyond the role of its network. They include: • Alleviating hardship associated with fuel poverty and promoting energy efficiency. Groups with initiatives which could include training, support and signposting that will better equip people to understand and manage energy usage are encouraged to apply. • Supporting Community Hubs with crisis planning through initiatives that help communities confidently navigate and be more resilient to challenges including the impact of severe weather. • Encouraging initiatives that develop learning pathways and support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and related career opportunities for underrepresented and disadvantaged people. • Supporting communities to lower their carbon footprint through initiatives that can help offering advice and support to individuals and communities to take practical steps, such as decarbonising premises, reducing waste, increasing recycling, improved energy use and management, encouraging local supply chains and services and raising awareness about new technology that can help people be energy smart. The grants available range from £1k to £10k for one-year initiatives and up to £20,000 for two-year initiatives. Applications must be submitted by 12 noon on 2 August 2022.
