British Gas Energy Trust Offering Fuel Poverty Grants

The British Gas Energy Trust is providing funding for individuals and families who are in or facing Fuel Poverty to clear domestic gas and electricity debts.

Two separate funds mean grants are available to customers and non-customers of British Gas.  Applicants to either fund must have received support from a money advice organisation and are required to provide the details of the group in question.  Proof of income is also required to determine whether a household is in or at risk of fuel poverty.

The funds will cover debt arrears of up to £1,500.  The Trust does not award cash payments and will instead credit the householder account.
