Fuel and money advice

We help families and individuals facing financial hardship and fuel poverty across England, Wales and Scotland. The Trust funds over 50 frontline advice services in local communities providing FREE 1-2-1 money advice, income maximisation, benefits advice and energy efficient measures, to those in need of support. We also run a direct access energy debt programme –  awarding grants to households that remove energy debt, fund emergency fuel credit and provide boiler replacements where boilers have been condemned.

British Gas Energy Trust, incorporating the Scottish Gas Energy Trust, is an independent charitable Trust funded solely from donations from British Gas. The Trust contributes to the relief of poverty, with a particular focus on fuel poverty.

The Trust helps families and individuals experiencing hardship who are struggling with gas and electricity debts by awarding grants to clear those debts. This makes a significant difference to the lives of thousands of people each year, helping them get back on their feet and remain debt free going forward.

The Trust also funds organisations across England, Wales and Scotland to provide fuel debt and money advice services within communities.
