Other grant providers The Trust helps families and individuals living in fuel poverty, or who are struggling to pay for their gas and/or electricity. They award grants to clear those debts. The Trust also offers help via Further Assistance Payments to clear other priority household debts or purchase essential household items. The British Gas Energy Trust has a particular focus on fuel poverty, helping those who are struggling to pay for their consumption of gas and electricity get back on their feet and remain debt free going forward. In exceptional cases the Trust can also help with other priority household costs and items.

Children and Families Save the Children run a grant programme called Eat, Sleep, Learn, Play! For low income families, this programme provides beds, white goods, toys and books to children who are disadvantaged and in need. The Family Fund gives grants to families raising disabled and seriously ill children aged 17 and under. The Family Holiday Association provides holidays for parents and children who experience disadvantage as a result of poverty. Action for Kids supports young people with physical and learning disabilities through the provision of mobility aids, employability training and family support. Marvellous Family Grants are for families facing financial hardship while caring for a seriously ill child.
