Electrical safety fund

Electrical Safety First – the UK charity dedicated to reducing the number of injuries and deaths caused by electricity – is pleased to announce the opening of this year’s Electrical Safety Fund. 
The Electrical Safety Fund is a grants scheme available to fund local projects which aim to keep people safe in their homes, with a focus on tackling risks associated with electrical products, increasing the public’s awareness of electrical safety, and promoting changes in behaviour. 
Applications will be accepted from fire and rescue services, trading standards authorities, community safety organisations, schools or other educational institutions, and not-for-profit organisations. 
Grants of up to £5,000 are available per organisation, though we may consider larger funding amounts of up to £10,000 for joint and/or larger projects, which focus on or incorporate a data capture element or which require cross-agency working. 
Applications must have a focus on helping to keep people electrically safe and be related to ensuring the safety of electrical products in the home, with the deadline for applications being 22 October 2023.
If you know of any organisations that the Electrical Safety Fund may be of interest to, you can find more information on our website at: https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/what-we-do/working-in-partnership/electrical-safety-fund/
