Helping people with their energy bills in the UK

Although 2023 saw lower wholesale energy prices than in 2022, the cost of energy remained relatively high for consumers.


Providing urgent help during the energy crisis


Helping people with their energy bills in the UK

In 2023, global energy supplies continued to be constricted and government support introduced to help consumers at the start of the crisis, had run its course. We see it as our duty to help customers and communities through difficult times. The Directors more than doubled our energy support fund to £140 million, making it the biggest voluntary support package ever provided by an energy company in the UK. Of this, we have committed £134 million in the UK since 2022. This results in total donations of around £60 million to the British Gas Energy Trust, with the majority of this funding dedicated to a cash support fund for customers and to help within communities. To further strengthen support at the heart of communities, £2 million was also provided to front-line charities like StepChange. The remaining funding, managed directly by British Gas, is helping residential and business customers with a particular focus on pre-payment customers.
