Read how our charity is supporting sustainability & low-carbon living
As I’m sure, you’ll know by now (we certainly tell you enough), 100% of all profits generated by The Compliance People are gift-aided to our parent charity Newground Together.
As a charity, Newground Together aims to empower people to create sustainable, connected, resilient, healthy and prosperous communities.
Recently the charity has been working on converting a two-bedroom home into a green hub to raise awareness about low-carbon living and to support people to live more sustainably. This project is part of Newground Togethers’ Green Together project, a partnership led by Newground Together working with Women Centre and Halifax Opportunities Trust.
As part of the conversion, the property has been fitted with better insulation, solar panels with battery storage and an air source heat pump. The gardens have also been regenerated, allowing residents to grow vegetables & wildflowers.
As part of the project, energy advisors are available to explain the technology which has been installed as well as providing tips on how people can live more sustainably – Hopefully saving them money in the long run. The hub also doubles as a pop-up community learning space.
Anna Dawson-Jones, Greener Together’s Community Programmes Coordinator, said: “It’s going to be a great use of a building which has previously been empty. We’ve transformed it into a green energy hub for the community to learn from. We’ve had so much interest already; we know it’ll be a success. It gives people the opportunity to see the new technology and ask questions about how it works. I really think it makes life easier, and we are helping the planet at the same time.“
