Education funding

Education funding is constantly evolving with new initiatives and funding opportunities being introduced to the sector. Those responsible for managing education estates are requiring ever more creative and professional strategies for income generation. Our education funding experts help schools, academies, colleges and universities to secure funding from any available streams to help create the best environments for learning.

Energy funding

Energy costs are variable and can easily be brought down through simple, conscious changes. We can help you to make small savings by changing energy suppliers or by getting a better tariff from your existing suppliers, however substantial reductions are possible by re-thinking your energy strategy. Funding is available to support your energy management transformation and we can help to secure this.
