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.
“Every week we hear from customers who are really starting to feel the pressure of increased household costs. Rising energy bills is adding to this burden. 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. That’s why we’ve set aside an additional £2 million for energy grants to help some of our customers and their families this winter.
This is on top of what we already provide either directly or indirectly in terms of advice and financial support.
