Utilita Giving - Grants for Charities and Organisations


Utilita Giving, a recently registered charity, is the charitable arm of Utilita, and is completely independent. It is governed by its own Board of Trustees, most of whom are also independent from Utilita (the UK’s first and only specialist Pay As You Go Smart Energy supplier).

The charity will operate primarily by the making of grants to individuals, households and/or other charities with similar objects. The charity intends also to raise the awareness of the public in the causes and consequences of fuel and food poverty which will be achieved by the publication of information on its website and other publicity materials.

Objectives of Fund

The funding is for projects that fall within Utilita Giving’s purpose of supporting people in fuel and food poverty.

The charity will prioritise funding that goes to:

  • Relieve fuel poverty or food poverty.
  • Educating the public in matters relating to fuel poverty or food poverty, including causes and impacts of such poverty and the things people can do to help prevent it.

Value Notes

Funding is at the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

Who Can Apply

Applications will be accepted from

  • Charities which are registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales, or which are exempt or excepted charities (within the meaning of the Charities Act 2011).
  • Charities which are registered with the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).
