Lancaster Sustainability Hub
A new community resource opened in Marketgate Lancaster on Friday 15th September 2023.
The Lancaster Sustainability Hub, hosted by Green Rose Community Interest Company offers free advice and support to local households to help them bring down their energy bills, stay warmer and live more sustainably.
Open 5 days a week, the Hub allows residents to access free information and advice about saving energy at home and learn about grants and benefits available to households struggling with high bills. The Hub also includes examples of small and large measures which households can use to save energy: from draught proofing and low energy lightbulbs to solar panels and heat pumps. As well as advice drop-ins and displays, the Hub is a venue for free educational workshops. Local residents will be able to drop in while they’re doing their shopping and find answers to their energy questions. They can browse the displays or speak to trained staff or volunteers. Green Rose can also book people onto free workshops to learn more about energy saving home improvements and helpful habits that save on bills. Eligible households can also arrange an in-depth appointment for free 121 advice.
Green Rose have partnered with Food Futures, offering a Wednesday drop-in for advice on growing and sourcing sustainable food. The hub is also a collection centre for plastic bottle tops to be recycled by Relic Plastic.
