How we helped in the past
The EDF Energy Trust helped individuals and families living in fuel poverty or other suffering or distress who are struggling with their gas and/or electricity debts by awarding grants to clear those debts. The aim of the Trust was to give vulnerable individuals a fresh start and enable them to keep free of fuel debts going forward.
The Trust also officered help via Further Assistance Payments – grants to clear other essential household debts or costs. In addition, the Trust awarded grants to money/debt/ fuel advice agencies to increase money advice / debt prevention services available in communities.
