The SCOREscotland Green Futures project offers help for members of Black and Ethnic Minority communities in West Edinburgh to reduce their carbon emissions through advice on home energy efficiency, sustainable travel and how to grow food at home.

The project was one of 116 across Scotland to be awarded a grant in the latest round of the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund. The Climate Challenge Fund is a Scottish Government grant programme that we manage and administer. We provide support, resources and training to support community groups taking action on climate change.
