Scottish and Southern Electricity Network have announced £280,000 in funds to boost Community Resilience funding again this year.
Key information about the funding:
- Funds are available for six weeks from 12th June

If you are a Town or Parish Council, it might be worth considering writing a Community Emergency Plan using the following templates – Preparing for emergencies – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) – as if successful, an application for this funding could help towards something specific for your own community.
The Emergency Planning Unit at Oxfordshire County Council can help support you in writing your Community Emergency Plan and can work with you to support your SSEN application if needed.
