Community Buildings Programme

​​About the Community Buildings Programme

The Community Buildings Programme was a grant funded scheme that has now closed. 

It improved energy efficiency in charities and not-for-profit organisations ​that provide a service to vulnerable members of the community. 

Grant funding was offered to the following three types of organisation within the Island:

  • residential accommodation for vulnerable Islanders
  • Parish sheltered accommodation provided to vulnerable Islanders
  • non-residential facilities being used to provide services to vulnerable Islanders

Works funded under the Community Buildings Programme

The following energy efficiency improvements were funded, subject to prior approval:

  • loft insulation
  • cavity wall insulation
  • draught proofing
  • pipe lagging
  • hot water cylinder replacements / lagging
  • heating controls (thermostats, programmers, timers, thermostatic radiator valves)
  • low energy lighting
  • energy monitoring devices
  • temperature meters
  • boiler replacements

Once accepted onto the scheme, properties had an initial assessment to identify which of the above measures could be offered the 100% funding.

Community building energy saving case study

A residential care home reduced their annual heating bill by an average of £8,350 through introducing a range of energy efficiency measures. They have improved comfort for their residents as well as increasing energy efficiency. The improvements made would be relevant to many other commercial buildings as well as private homes.
