Funding to support vulnerable energy consumers to pay off their energy debts is now open to applications.
British Gas Energy Trust is an independent charitable body set up to support those who are struggling to pay their bills, regardless of energy provider.
The Individuals and Families Fund is intended to tackle fuel poverty by clearing the energy debts of struggling households and respond to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis.
Grants to cover arrears of up to £1,500 will be credited to the energy account of eligible households.
- Live in England, Scotland or Wales.
- Not have received a grant from the British Gas Energy Trust within the last two years.
- Be seeking a grant to clear an outstanding debt on a current or open gas, electricity or dual fuel energy account in their name or be a member of that household. The energy account must relate to a main residence.
- Be facing fuel poverty.
- Have received help from a money advice agency.
The fund is available to BG and Non-BG customers with debt on a credit energy account or those on a pre-payment meter. Please note that suppliers with their own support fund are excluded from this fund: Boost, Eon, Eon Next, EDF, Scottish Power, Ovo, Octopus, SSE and Utilita.
The Fund is expected to close at the end of March 2024 (unless all the funding is allocated sooner).
