We are entering a phase of financial hardship that is almost unprecedented. At this time, many will be struggling to pay bills and worrying about the future.
There is, unfortunately, no simple solution or fix for the problems many are facing. We have gathered some links to resources that may be able to offer help or, at the very least, advice on what you can do.:-
- British Gas Energy Trust Support
- Scottish Power Hardship Fund
- OVO Energy Fund
- E-On Energy Fund
- E-On Next Energy Fund
- EDF Priority Services Register
- Bulb Energy Support Fund (currently suspended due to demand, however, there are links to help and advice on the website)
- Octopus Energy Fund
If you are unable to obtain a grant from your own supplier, you might be able to get a grant from the British Gas Energy Trust. These grants are available to anyone – you don’t have to be a British Gas customer to be eligible.
You may also be able to access local grants. You can see what’s available in your area on the Simple Energy Advice website.
