Yes it can. We appreciate that some projects can’t succeed without the help of some paid time. However, we ask that all activity and project costs are reasonable and proportionate.

The grant programme can support all costs relating to a project or activity including core costs (e.g. staff, office costs), project costs (e.g. venue hire, project worker) and capital costs (e.g. can support the cost of a renewable energy installation).

We want to promote the use of volunteers wherever possible. Have a look at the Volunteer Bristol website if you are looking for volunteers in your area. If you have any questions, please contact our partners at Bristol Energy Network via or call 07871 791 679.
