Information for organisations

This page will mainly be of interest to advice organisations and other charities. It outlines the work of the Trust and provides information for managers, employees, volunteers and others involved in these types of organisations.

United Utilities Trust Fund is one of about 8,800 grant making trusts in the UK.

It is one of a handful of Trust Funds established by utility companies.

Its objective is the relief of poverty – the people it can help are those who have a liability to pay water charges to United Utilities Water (directly or indirectly) and who are unable to pay.

Grants are given solely at the discretion of the Trustees depending on the person’s circumstances.

Mostly, grants are given to individuals or families to help clear Water Debt or to help with Water Charges so that they can start to regain control of their weekly outgoings.

Other grants are available, in the form of ‘Further Assistance’. They are made available where the Trustees can see that it will make a significant impact for a person.

For instance:

  • To provide a manageable budget in the future by relieving the pressure of other important or urgent bills.
  • To help relieve distress in crisis.
  • To provide an essential household item where no other source is available.
