The IGas Energy Community Fund is a further commitment we make towards the vitality of the communities in which we operate. Our Community Fund has distributed c.£1 million since its launch in 2008 to projects that are charitable, educational or benevolent in purpose. Projects are chosen by an independent panel made up of members from community groups and parish councils from areas in, and adjacent to, our operations.
These projects aim to benefit groups of people within the local communities as well as wildlife and the surrounding environment. Projects have supported children and young people, vulnerable members of our communities, regeneration projects, self-help groups delivering basic services, wildlife projects and projects providing education and skills development opportunities.
Over recent years, the fund has helped projects ranging from nature reserves to playgrounds.
In addition to the Community Fund, IGas supports staff in their efforts to volunteer or raise money for charity.
Examples of some of the community projects we have worked with can be found here.
In September 2016, a newsletter was produced to highlight some of the projects in the East Midlands that have benefitted from the Community Fund in the last couple of years. A copy of the newsletter can be found here.
