First Utility is helping vulnerable families and individuals across the UK
The First Utility Foundation is a charitable trust funded and created by First Utility, the UK’s largest independent energy supplier.The foundation was set up to give something back to the community
We support projects that make a genuine difference to the lives of vulnerable families and individuals across the UK by awarding grants to charitable schemes that can deliver real improvements to quality of life.
First Utility is putting 1% of its annual profits into the Foundation. We care about our communities and we want to make a genuine difference to those who need help the most. That is why the First Utility Foundation’s grants focus on causes and charities which work tirelessly to make a real difference to the lives of those who are most vulnerable in society.
If you run or would like to recommend a charity or non-profit organisation, and have a proven track record of delivering innovative care to those who need it most, then we would like to hear from you.
The First Utility Foundation has awarded grants for a diverse range of projects. So far these have included:
- Schemes which have focused on improving the lives of people with disabilities
- Projects to help the elderly
- Programmes which have had a positive impact on the lives of vulnerable families and children
Some really strong projects were supported in 2015, and we hope that next year will be equally positive. As First Utility grows, so does the Foundation which means more grants can be awarded and help even more people.
