To kick off the new CORT grant application process for 2023/24, the Trust hosted a one day, in person, Sandpit event on Thursday 15th June at Sheffield Hallam University.

This year the Trust will be focusing on grant bids funding research into CO and the indoor environment.

The aim of this event was to bring together potential grant applicants providing a forum for free-thinking and collaborative project development, delving into the problems surrounding research into CO and the indoor environment.

The Trust aim to focus our activity in the next two years on furthering research into some key priority areas, including, understanding the impact of building regulation and energy efficiency on CO safety as well as the role of solid fuels.

We will also consider vulnerable groups and develop solutions to mitigate associated risks as well as projects that improve detection and measure the scale of CO poisoning in the UK.
