NOT-FOR-PROFIT businesses and projects which help people who can’t afford heat or electricity are being urged to enter a national award.

The Community Footprint Award is held jointly by National Energy Action and the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

Nine organisations across England will receive an award of £2,000 to help deliver a new initiative or add value to an existing project.

The NEA will also give financial and practical support to help the nine winning firms hold an event which will demonstrate how they work with other organisations, local bodies, and the public.

After the event, the nine will be judged, with one winner winning the national award and another £3,000 prize.

National Energy Action is encouraging other not-for-profit organisations to apply for the Community Footprint Award by September 27.

Details are available or by contacting Nina Dunlavy at or on 0191 2692935.
