Community Grants

Championing community-owned energy across Oxfordshire

Low Carbon Hub is championing community-owned energy across Oxfordshire through our Community Grant Fund, which offers financial support for community energy activities in the county.

Any low carbon community groups based in Oxfordshire which become a member of the Low Carbon Hub CIC are eligible to apply for our grant funding. We have small grants of up to £500 available throughout the year, as well as a handful of large grants of up to £5000 which are awarded annually through a competitive process.

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.

We were able to award four Low Carbon Hub community groups with a large grant in 2018-9:

  • Low Carbon Oxford North for their healthy streets and active travel project
  • Low Carbon West Oxford for their Kids CAN resources on how to communicate climate change effectively to children
  • Sustainable Charlbury for their greener, healthier homes project
  • Sustainable Kirtlington for their installation of solar pv panels on their village hall.
