£2 million energy fund to support British Gas customers this winter

Posted on 02nd Dec 2021

Today British Gas announce a new £2 million fund to support their customers this winter, to be administered by the Trust. Centrica Chief Executive Chris O’Shea explains why.

It’s distressing to hear some of these stories and to appreciate the choices some people make to ensure their money goes as far as possible. We can’t take this weight off everyone, but I know there is more we can do to help our most financially vulnerable customers.
