Today the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund announced that South Seeds will be awarded £230,000 for the next phase of its energy work. South Seeds will be working to tackle fuel poverty and carbon emissions in the communities of East Pollokshields, Govanhill, Crosshill, Queen’s Park and Strathbungo through the Southside Energy Saving Champions project.

The project will include activities to engage with Eastern European and other ethnic minority communities as well as creating a private landlords forum. The project will help the local communities reduce their energy use and bills through offering home energy efficiency advice and facilitation of practical home energy efficiency improvements. It will also support uptake of home composting and renewables.

Here is today’s Scottish Government’s announcement.
