£6 million ‘E.ON Energy Fund’ launched to help pensioners, families, people with disabilities and those on low incomes

E.ON has today (WED) launched the ‘E.ON Energy Fund' - a £6 million independently-run fund to help people struggling with their energy bills.

Eligible pensioners, families, people with disabilities and those on low incomes are invited to apply for help with the payment of energy debt and the provision or replacement of white goods and gas boilers. The E.ON Energy Fund is open to all energy customers - regardless of their energy supplier.

The fund is being independently managed by Charis Grants which will own all aspects of the process, from handling applications through to decision-making and issuing payments.

E.ON UK Chief Executive Tony Cocker said: "Our £6 million E.ON Energy Fund has been established to ensure that the people who need the most help can benefit from real support.

"We're speaking to a number of organisations, such as Citizens Advice and Age UK, to spread the word about our new fund and to help drive referrals and applications. Successful applicants could receive help with settling debts on their energy bills and support in the form of a new energy efficient boiler, washing machine, or fridge/freezer. We urge anyone who's eligible to get in touch so our independent partner, Charis Grants, can advise them on the support available."

The E.ON Energy Fund has been set-up following E.ON's commitment to Ofgem in September 2014 to give back closed credits (money which E.ON has been unable to return to customers who've left) to vulnerable people who meet its eligibility criteria.


To be eligible, applicants - and in some circumstances someone in their household - must be in receipt of one of the following:

Pension Credit;

A means tested Council Tax reduction;

Child Tax Credits (or the Universal Credit Equivalent) with a total household income of £16,190 or less;

Working Tax Credits with a household income of £16,190 or less;

Universal Credit, so long as they're not in work or self-employed;

Income Related Employment and Support Allowance, Income Support, or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance.

Alternatively applicants may be eligible if they or someone in their household is confirmed as being terminally ill by a doctor or consultant.
