What is it?
Intelligent Energy seeks to make a positive impact on the local community it operates within. As part of this, a Charitable Trust was launched in early 2019 to support charitable and voluntary organisations, local to Intelligent Energy’s headquarters in Loughborough, which support and aid amongst others; community groups, young people, sport and lifelong learning.
The Trust will look to distribute £100,000 per annum. Beneficiary organisations must be located within and principally benefit people who live in the Charnwood borough. They are not required to have registered charitable status. However, all donations must meet Charity Commission criteria. The Trust is governed by a committee comprised of three Intelligent Energy employees and three external representatives which meets twice a year.

Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People
As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, we provide vital care and support to families impacted by life-limiting conditions. Your support means we can provide end of life care, symptom management, short breaks and respite care. We can also be there to support parents and siblings through their bereavements. Our team are there for families when they need us the most, but we couldn’t do our work without the help of people like you. We know that together we can bring more love, smiles and laughter to our children, young people and families.
