British Gas Energy Trust (BGET)

The British Gas Energy Trust provides grants to clear gas and electricity debts owed to British Gas, Scottish Gas or to other energy suppliers.

Due to pressure on the Trust's budgets, awards will only be made to the highest priority cases, e.g. applicants in extreme hardship with exceptional/multiple vulnerabilities.

Applicants must live in England, Scotland or Wales.
