The ScottishPower Energy People Trust is an independent charity that provides funding to front line charities who help vulnerable, disadvantaged people out of fuel poverty.
It was formed in November 2005 following research that asked stakeholders what they would want to see from a ScottishPower Trust.
The study highlighted the need for the Trust to provide funding through existing agencies and charities and for a straightforward grant application process.
Since its formation the Trust has provided funding to organisations across Britain who work with people suffering from fuel poverty and are well-placed to identify those most in need.
The Trust receives funding from ScottishPower but makes decisions independently of the company through a Board of Trustees.
As part of its commitment to addressing fuel poverty, ScottishPower has provided over £14.5 million in funding to the Trust to date, including funds for distribution and administrative costs.
The ScottishPower Energy People Trust is a registered charity, number SC036980. Registered address: 1 Atlantic Quay, Glasgow, G2 8SP.
