Application Process

To apply for a grant from the British Gas Energy Trust, you must fill in an application form. This section guides you through the process, provides useful information, and shows you where you can get additional advice.

Insolvency Options

Making an application directly

If you are applying for insolvency fees you must not have previously been declared bankrupt, ensure you provide a full list of debts and have received advice from a professional advice worker or intermediary.

Making an application on behalf of an individual

If you are applying for Insolvency fees as a Further Assistance Payments (FAP) on behalf of a client, you must submit a signed declaration confirming that your client fits the Trusts' criteria and that the client has received comprehensive advice on the implications of receiving an Insolvency option from an appropriately trained Money/Debt Advice worker.

This is essential for the Trust to be confident that the client is fully informed of the action they are taking and all possible consequences. If you are supporting your client but are not the one giving this advice, do not sign the declaration, but pass it to the trained adviser to sign.

If desired, you may download a declaration and submit it, already completed, with the application as this may help to speed up the application process for both parties. To download a declaration please use the buttons below.

Please remember that you must also submit a full list of debts for all clients seeking help with Insolvency fees. The Trusts cannot help with the court fees where the client is liable for these.
