The EDF Energy Trust is a registered charity that helps 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) for the purchase of 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.
