British Gas Energy Trust

British Gas Energy Trust

The British Gas Energy Trust (BGET) helps families and individuals experiencing hardship who are struggling with energy debts.

 

British Gas Energy Trust, incorporating the Scottish Gas Energy Trust, is an independent charitable Trust funded solely by donations from British Gas. The Trust contributes to supporting those in financial difficulty, with a focus on energy debt.

 

The Trust helps families and individuals experiencing hardship who are struggling with gas and electricity debts by awarding grants to clear those debts. This makes a significant difference in the lives of thousands of people each year, helping them get back on their feet and remain debt free going forward.

 

The Trust also funds organisations across England, Wales and Scotland to provide fuel debt and money advice services within communities.

 

If you’re struggling with money and energy debt, you are not alone. We’re an independent charitable trust set up to support families and individuals who are struggling to pay their bills across England, Wales and Scotland, no matter which energy company you are with.

 

How we help 

  • Free resources to help make sure you’re getting the support and benefits you may be entitled to
  • We fund frontline advice services in local communities providing free 1-2-1 money, benefits, and energy efficiency advice
  • We also run a direct access energy debt programme –  awarding grants to households that remove energy debt, fund emergency fuel credit and provide boiler replacements
