The British Gas Energy Trust (BGET), which incorporates the Scottish Gas Energy Trust, is an independent Charitable Trust established in 2004 and remains funded solely by British Gas. Our mission is to alleviate the detrimental impact of poverty, with a focus on fuel poverty.
Since launch The British Gas Energy Trust has provided consistent, financial help for vulnerable households and remains one of the largest, grant giving energy Trusts in the UK – since 2004 over £175.8* has been invested to help over 700,000 people manage their household budgets and energy costs.
The Trust is governed by an independent Board of voluntary Trustees and lead by the Chief Executive, who runs the Trust with a dedicated team, who bring with them a range of relevant experience from within the money advice, energy, charitable and financial sectors.
Our Theory of Change describes and illustrates our mission, aims and objectives, how we go about achieving this and the outcomes we hope to see as a Trust.
