Partnering to build stronger communities

As an international company with over 29,000 employees, we have the resources, reach and expertise to make a significant contribution to communities where we live and work.

That is why we are collaborating across sectors to tackle key social issues that our communities and our business care passionately about – from helping create better lives for carers in the UK to improving the lives of children and their families through support of local hospitals in North America.

Carers UK

In 2018 Centrica joined forces with Carers UK in a three-year strategic partnership that aims to improve the lives of the UK's 6.5 million carers.

Our partnership builds on Centrica’s previous work with Carers UK over the last fifteen years, developing leading policies to support employees with caring responsibilities. We aim to contribute £1m for Carers UK over the course of the partnership.
