Congratulations to all who were successful securing SHDF funding. The hard work starts now and for social housing organisations retrofit brings multiple benefits, both to the organisations themselves and to their tenants. These include reduced energy demand; reduced energy costs (alleviating fuel poverty); reduced greenhouse gas emissions; improved comfort for residents; and, most importantly, improved health and wellbeing.
