Low Carbon Hub community grants

Please note: you must be Low Carbon Hub CIC member to apply for a grant.

There are small (up to £500) and large (up to £5000) grants available for groups which are Community Members of the Low Carbon Hub CIC to support community projects which contribute towards our mission.

Examples of previous projects wholly or part-funded by a Low Carbon Hub grant include conducting energy assessments for local households, installing solar panels on a community building, or working on low carbon transport in a localised area.

These grants are ONLY available to existing Low Carbon Hub CIC members. If you are part of a low carbon community group based in Oxfordshire, that is not yet a member of the Low Carbon Hub CIC, please contact us to find out how to join and if you are eligible.

Want to become a community member?

Community groups who choose to join the Low Carbon Hub Community Interest Company (CIC) as community shareholders gain access to our advice and support, including grant funding for low carbon activities.

To become a Community Member, a group needs to be working on low carbon and sustainability in their area, with energy as a central focus.
