Community projects and schemes

Community Environment Fund

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has announced a third year of funding for the Community Environment Fund. 

The Combined Authority is looking to support community environment projects in order to raise awareness of the climate emergency, start to mitigate its effects and increase engagement and participation in environmental projects.

Green projects from across the Liverpool City Region can now apply for grants of up to £30,000 for initiatives that encourage long-term behavioural change, while improving the city region’s environment and safeguarding its green spaces.

The fund has already supported 92 local environmental projects including community gardens, bikes for veterans, beekeeping and food growing initiatives.

Solar Together

Solar Together is a group-buying scheme for solar panels and battery storage.

This innovative scheme will enable homeowners in Sefton and across the City Region to buy solar panels and battery storage helping them to cut their energy costs while also reducing their carbon emissions.  There is also an option to have electric vehicle charging points fitted.

Solar Together Liverpool City Region will help the city region's homeowners feel confident that they are paying the right price for a high-quality installation from pre-approved installers. The scheme is also open to small and medium-sized enterprises and places of worship.

It is free to register and there is no obligation to go ahead with an installation. The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority is working in partnership with Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral councils, and independent experts iChoosr, to make the transition to clean energy as cost effective and hassle-free as possible.
