Working with the Community
Storengy Uk is proud to work with local community groups.
Helping the community during COVID-19
Storengy UK have been supporting different groups in the community, Key workers in Care homes, delivery companies, young school children and people in temporary accommodation.
Over the last few weeks, Storengy UK has been working with local communities, supporting different people in society during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our organisation has been in a fortunate position to continue operations during this time, whilst others have not been able to do so. As a result, we decided to allocate funding for some local initiatives that we hope went a small way in making a big difference.
The initiatives have been:
1. A matched contribution from Storengy for Chester Aid to the Homeless. In May we raised £260 online and this amount will be matched to take the total to £520 in just 1 month! Thanks to everyone for your contributions.
2. Donation of iPads to a local care home, Vivo Care Choices, and to The Care Leavers Team in Ellesmere Port. Vivo provides innovative care solutions for older people and adults with learning disabilities, while the Care Leavers Team work with young adults leaving the care system and starting their careers.
3. Donation of 3D-printed face shields to Morrisons Logistics in Gadbrook Park. It was great to be able to work with a local company and provide key workers with face shields so they can continue to safely deliver essential groceries to people in the surrounding areas.
4. In collaboration with the Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP), we have pledged 20 computer kits for pupils in Cheshire West and Chester. Each kit includes a computer & 3 months’ broadband access. 13% of secondary school students in Cheshire and Warrington don’t have access to a computer or broadband connectivity.

5. We’ve also teamed up with Greater Manchester Homeless Partnership to donate games and puzzles and essentials including tinned food and toiletries to adults and children living in temporary accommodation during lockdown.
6. Donated Face masks to a local Primary School Rudheath Academy.

Helping the community go green!
In line with our commitment and strategy to help local business & communities to a low carbon economy, we will be increasing our program of roadshows and events in the local area and looking at ways we can support projects such as ones focusing on energy efficiency improvements that residents can implement in their own homes.
Storengy UK created a Local Community Fund (LCF), in 2008 to support local parishes.
Initially the fund helped with renovation works on local parish buildings but more recently the fund has been focused on energy efficiency projects. So far Storengy has; installed Solar PV, energy efficient windows and doors, low energy light fittings and LEDs, efficient boiler controls, loft insulation and LED lighting across the 5 parish's in the local area.
Example of our funding is Byley Village Hall, Storengy UK supplied funding for Solar PV panels and the Village Hall funded a Telsar battery to store the energy generated.
Byley Parish have worked closely with Storengy UK through our Local Liaison Committee since the start of the project. The company has made every effort to keep us informed of their plans well ahead of taking actions which has enabled the parishioners to make comments/suggestions and be kept up to date. The company has made a very good job of screening the plant from view. They have been excellent ‘neighbours’ to our farmers and minimised disruption when installing pipelines and afterwards returning the land back to the farmers. Finally Storengy UK have contributed through their local community fund to some projects within the 5 effected parishes, for which we’re very grateful.

In 2020 the local community fund will be used to support more projects that assist with the transition to zero carbon and a number of health & well being and educational initiatives focusing on the next generation.
