Inch Cape aims to work with the communities where the project will have an impact through regular communication and engagement. This includes programmes with schools and support of worthwhile initiatives through the Inch Cape Construction Fund. 

Inch Cape Construction Fund

The Inch Cape Construction Fund provides grants to local community groups and charities benefiting the communities surrounding the site of the project’s onshore substation at Cockenzie, East Lothian namely within one or both of the following community council areas:

  • Prestonpans
  • Cockenzie & Port Seton

The Fund is now seeking applications from groups and organisations that have projects or initiatives that aim to tackle the effects of poverty and inequality or to improve the local environment and support a sustainable future.  The applying organisation does not have to be a registered charity, but the aim of funded activities must be charitable.

The Fund is administered by Foundation Scotland, an independent grant-making charity. To find out more information about the fund and how to apply for a grant visit the Inch Cape Construction Fund page here. You can also download this Inch Cape Construction Fund Poster with more information and contact details.

This Fund is specific to the project’s onshore substation construction phase and is separate from any community benefit fund associated with the project once the offshore wind farm is operational. 

To find out about the organisations and initiatives supported by grants from the fund visit the Construction Fund grants awarded page.

Working with young people

Inch Cape is actively working with schools and education providers to improve knowledge and awareness about offshore wind and to highlight the range of careers and opportunities available in the sector.

This work has focussed on schools closest to the onshore construction site at Cockenzie in East Lothian, including Preston Lodge High School and Cockenzie Primary School, but has also involved activities in Dundee & Angus, nearer to the location of our long-term operations & maintenance base.
