Charities and community organisations can apply for grants from a charitable foundation to help towards the cost of decarbonising their buildings.

With the UK now accelerating its push towards net zero, public and commercial buildings across the country are looking to retrofit their buildings to be more energy efficient and cut carbon emissions.

However, the cost of such measures can be prohibitive, especially for charities and community groups operating on shoestring budgets.

Liverpool property consultancy The Momentum Group is now offering grants for such improvements through its charitable arm, The Momentum Foundation.

It is inviting applications for grants which they can use for measures such as double glazing, energy-efficient appliances and lighting, improved insulation and renewable generating methods such as solar panels and ground source heat pumps.

These grants are being administered by the Community Foundations for Lancashire and Merseyside (CFLM).  Using The Momentum Group’s skills and expertise, the initiative is designed to enhance the sustainability of community buildings 

Chris Bliss, co-founder and director of Momentum Group, said: “Rising operational costs and the negative impact of the cost-of-living crisis on donations is reducing the ability of many local charities and volunteer groups to provide much needed community support.

“The latest round of grants from the Momentum Foundation is designed to help alleviate some of that financial pressure so that vital volunteer services can continue in the community.”

The Momentum Foundation was created by The Momentum Group, which was launched by Chris Bliss and Chris Renshaw in 2019. They wanted to ensure the business and its employees make a positive, long-lasting contribution to their local communities.

Momentum operates four commercial businesses: advise, build, maintain and manage, and has now added contribute as the fifth arm of the business.

Chris Renshaw, also co-founder and director of the business, added: “The Momentum Group endeavours to make a positive contribution to the communities of which it is part.

“This is why we view Momentum Contribute, of which the Momentum Foundation is part, as the fifth and equal element to our business.”

Completed applications will be assessed by CFLM to check eligibility and a panel will make recommendations based on the fund’s criteria and the budget available.  For further information contact CFLM on 0330 440 4900 or email
