British Gas Energy Trust, incorporating the Scottish Gas Energy Trust, is an independent charitable Trust funded solely by donations from British Gas. The Trust contributes to supporting those in financial difficulty, with a focus on energy debt.

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.
