Grants to help pay off your energy debts

If you’re in debt to your energy supplier, you might be able to get a grant to help pay it off. A number of energy suppliers offer grants to their own customers. British Gas also has grants which are available to anyone with energy debt between £250 and £750 and you don’t need to be a British Gas customer to apply.

You can find more information about grants to help pay off your energy debts on the Citizens Advice website.
