Making a difference. How we’re supporting your community
You’ve welcomed us into your homes for 200 years. That’s why we’re committed to giving back to the people and communities we serve.
How we’re making a difference. Giving back to your community
Your community is at the heart of our business. So we want to do what’s right and make a difference to it. We're doing this in three ways:
- helping people who need extra support to keep their homes warm and working
- building the skills Britain needs to power the homes of the future
- supporting local causes up and down the country
British Gas Energy Trust. Financial help if you need it
We know how difficult it can be to stay on top of your finances. That’s why we set up the British Gas Energy Trust in 2004.
It’s an independent charity that can provide you with grants and debt advice if you’re struggling to pay for your energy. Best of all, you don’t need to be a British Gas customer to use it.
Work in the community. In local communities
Through local partnerships and innovative approaches, we’re helping communities understand how to be more energy efficient and use less energy.
And our people give their time through volunteering to support local causes.
