Climate fund boosts Henfield eco-project

Edition: November 2022

We launched our Horsham District Community Climate Fund in July 2020 to enable voluntary and community groups, as well as Parish and Neighbourhood Councils, to work on projects to reduce carbon levels locally and improve our environment.

Henfield Haven Trustees

One of the latest successful grant recipients of the Climate Fund is local community centre Henfield Haven.

Henfield Haven operate a community centre in Henfield providing a variety of services including high-needs care for people living with dementia.

The centre had an energy study done of its five buildings and one of the key recommendations to reduce its energy use and carbon emissions was to install photovoltaic (PV) panels. The panels will generate 23,000 kWh, which will supply most of Henfield Haven's electricity.

The grant funds contributed towards the installation of the PV panels.

These funds are being used in a way which will directly benefit the environment, combat climate change and reduce energy costs, which can be passed on to Henfield Haven clients.

The benefits derived from this project will reduce the cost of the services we provide.
