Support For Local Groups

Mendip Environment can support environmental groups in Mendip district in a variety of ways.

  • Helping to publicise the work of your group
  • Loaning resources such as electricity consumption meters, 'green' games, flip chart and stands, display boards and tables
  • Advising on funding sources
  • Working in partnership on local sustainability projects

Over the coming months, we plan to develop ways of providing additional support:

  • Running networking events which will help to give a collective voice to voluntary organisations to influence local government policy
  • Offering groups their own web pages on this site, to post information and update it, or a page to summarise the group's activities with a link to the group's own website.
  • Providing web discussion fora and events calendars for local groups
  • Offering training and support to those members wanting to become energy assessors, so they can carry out household energy audits
  • We welcome suggestions from all Mendip environmental groups as to how we can best support you.
