Our work

Lining a roof space with insulation made from sheeps wool

Coleshill village energy project  

Turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper, and you can hardly escape alarms about spiralling energy bills and stories of how climate change is already having an impact on our lives. But understanding what positive actions you can make in your day-to-day life, and being motivated to actually take them is trickier.
