East London Impact Fund- Call for proposal

Source By: Social Investment Business

  • Social Investment Business is in the learning and design phase of launching a new social investment fund – the East London Impact Fund (ELIF). The Fund is still pre-launch, with a formal launch anticipated for Winter 2018.

  • We have had initial learning and design workshops with Charities and Social Enterprises (CSEs); and have been engaging with potential partners including other social investors, CVS groups and other local support networks.

  • We are also increasingly aware of the need to consider the products and services most relevant to CSEs if a Fund is to best support the delivery of increased impact in the communities that CSEs serve.

FREE Smart Seminars

Source By: NEA



Refresh and update your knowledge of smart meters and how they can benefit your clients



** New speaker confirmed: in-home display manufacturer Chameleon **

Chameleon is known for its in-home display design and we are pleased that are able to support the smart seminar series to talk about some of their views about the potential of real time data and engaging best with vulnerable consumers.

We are delighted to invite you to attend one of our smart seminar series to hear about the latest developments and opportunities within the smart meter rollout and to help address some of the challenges along the way!

NEA wants to make sure low-income and vulnerable consumers know how to best engage with their smart meter and how to realise the benefits including what protections are in place to support them. More than 12 million smart meters have been fitted in people's homes, with 73% of those with a smart meter recommending them to friends and family. As an organisation supporting hard to reach clients, you are in a unique and trusted position to help those who may need additional support to engage with smart meters.

NEA would like to invite you to attend a free Smart Seminar to share learning, address the myths and challenges posed by recent media coverage and discuss best practice for working with and engaging vulnerable consumers in the rollout to ensure nobody is left behind.
