The EDF Energy Renewables Barmoor Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund at the Community Foundation makes grants to voluntary and community organisations based within a ten-kilometre radius of the Barmoor Wind Farm, with priority given to those within a five-kilometre radius.
The Fund will also consider applications from organisations based outside of the 10km radius, but they must clearly demonstrate direct benefit to residents living within the priority area.
Applicants can apply for a minimum of £250 and up to £10,000; grants of up to £20,000 may be considered in exceptional circumstances.
Priority will be given to capital items with a tangible, lasting benefit, including improvements to community buildings. Running costs and revenue funding will be considered in exceptional cases.
Applicants must demonstrate that:
If you are applying for the costs of second-hand equipment, your application must demonstrate why this represents better value than purchasing new equipment and how the equipment will be maintained.
If you are applying for funding towards non-renewable heating or power generation, your application must demonstrate that renewable technology has been investigated as part of the project development.
