Based on our experience of living and working in the area, the Directors of Moor Sustainable identified the need for a social enterprise to source funding and manage/undertake projects to help to ensure a sustainable future. Our activities will benefit the community through improving our environment, helping to cut carbon and strengthening our communities.
Members of the group have already been involved in such projects but the funding has previously been channelled either through a non-local CIC or through a private limited company. As a social enterprise, we have access to more funding opportunities than does a private limited company.
We hope that the projects supported by Moor Sutainable CIC will also provide local people with the chance to gain work experience through voluntary/paid work in areas such as: energy reduction, efficiency and generation; biodiversity; transport; community and culture.
