Special Schools Funding, England

Since 2004 Salix have funded over 50 special schools with energy efficiency projects totalling over £1 million. Salix understand the highly energy intensive school environments of special schools and the opportunities for excellent energy saving projects, which can both improve the school learning environment and save on energy bills. With this in mind, Salix have decided to allocate funding specifically for special schools to access. 

We have a lot of information to share with the public sector in our Knowledge Share area which you can access by registering on the website. There are lots of Project Knowledge Slides in this database that have been submitted by the clients themselves to give you feedback and ideas for projects.
