  • Our Story

    The Green Open Homes network aims to support low-carbon open homes events across the country through free resources and advice. The events provide an opportunity for visitors to ask a neighbour about an energy saving improvement that they’ve made, and see if it might inspire them to carry out something similar in their own home.

    The competition

    Community groups can apply for a small grant between £500 and £2,500 to help them run an open homes event before the end of May 2015. Application forms can be downloaded from the website and the total funding pot is £48,000. For further details click here or email

    The online hub provides a searchable directory of low carbon open homes events across the country, where organisers can upload the details of their event to a national audience.

    Creating a decent website for a complicated event can be a hassle for a community group, so provides a simple online template that you can fill in to create a free event mini-site with all the information your visitors will need. isn’t just a directory – there are also around 20 resources to help community groups start up and run an open homes event, including advice about insurance, marketing, project planning, and template guidance for volunteers and open home hosts.
