EDF Energy Trust

The EDF Energy Trust is a registered charity which aims to help individuals and families in need, poverty, suffering and other distress who are struggling to pay their gas and/or electricity debts. Applications to the Trust are accepted from current domestic account holders of EDF Energy (the person/persons named on the bill). 

The Trust helps by giving grants: 

  • To clear gas and electricity debts owed to EDF Energy.
  • To clear gas and electricity debts owed to other suppliers. 
  • For Bankruptcy deposits/Debt Relief Orders (DRO's), purchase essential energy efficient white goods and cookers (these payments are known as FAPs (Further Assistance Payments)).

The aim of the Trust is to give vulnerable individuals and families a fresh start to enable them to keep free of debt going forward. Applicants are strongly advised to seek money advice before applying to the Trust.
