SSE Sustainable Development Fund

The Sustainable Development Fund is in addition to SSE’s local community funds and supports strategic projects in the regions where SSE is operating. The fund supports projects which take a longer term view by delivering transformational social, economic and/or environmental changes in the community and develop sustainable ventures for the future.

The fund supports projects which:

  1. Creating opportunities – Create or enhance opportunities for education and employment through activities that develop skills and improve an individual’s chance of entering the workplace.
  2. Empowering communities – Empower communities to become more resilient and protect vulnerable residents through measures which demonstrate long-term social, environmental or economic improvements.
  3. Sustainable places – Stimulate meaningful regeneration to improve or enhance local infrastructure, landscape, biodiversity or heritage and make a lasting difference to the places we live, work and visit.

The fund is expected to be worth over £50million over the next 25 years. The Dumfries and Galloway fund is currently open with a fund value of £200,000 and a deadline of 1 August 2018.
