About this project

The 9th Aberdeen Scout Group is a youth led organisation in the Broomhill area of Aberdeen. Our members are passionate about improving our impact on the climate. They want our Scout Group to head towards Net Zero and be the Scout Group with the lowest climate impact in Aberdeen! 
 
Our biggest use of energy is in heating and lighting our Scout Hut and in travelling to and from the hut.  
 
We want to replace our old roof and walls which have no insulation with modern highly fuel efficient materials.  
 
We want to replace our old single glazed windows with modern highly fuel efficient double glazing. 

We want to replace our old inefficient lighting with modern low energy usage lighting. 

We want to encourage users to cycle to and from the hut by installing cycle lock infrastructure. 

We need your help on our journey to fuel efficiency!

Our people carrier transports our service users to the groups and activities which we provide – particularly the children and young people of our Young People’s Sensory Service (YPSS). The funding requested would enable us to replace our current people carrier, now seven years old, with a similar but electric vehicle.
