Help when you need it

Help with paying your bill

We know that sometimes it’s difficult to pay your bills. If you ever need a helping hand, our financial support schemes can offer you the support you need.

We have several schemes that can help you if you’re struggling to pay your bill, whatever your circumstances. From setting up regular, manageable payments, to reducing your bill to an amount you can afford if you’re on a low income, we’re here to help. 

How our financial support schemes can help you

We run several schemes that can help make your bill more affordable.

Here’s how the Big Difference Scheme and the Severn Trent Trust Fund helped one of our customers.


Help from the Severn Trent Trust Fund and Big Difference Scheme

That’s when Sharon found the Severn Trent Trust Fund and the Big Difference Scheme. 

Our teams came out to visit Sharon and George in his home and went through the paperwork with them to get George the help he needed.

“It was absolutely amazing”, Sharon said. “They went through all the forms, told us what to apply for and then helped us fill in the forms.”

Changing lives for the better

The financial support George got from the Severn Trent Trust Fund and the Big Difference Scheme have transformed his life, according to Sharon.

“He lives a completely different life now. Now he goes out. He can go to town, he goes shopping, comes back with a little bag of food.

“The most amazing day was when he went and bought some steak… He hadn’t eaten steak in six years.”

Telling others about the support that’s available

Sharon hasn’t stopped with just helping George though. She’s been spreading the word round to others in her community, handing out leaflets to anyone she thinks might benefit from the financial help we can provide.

“I came away with a lot of leaflets from the Trust Fund, and I give them out all the time to people. I’m just one portal, just screaming…about the Trust Fund and about Severn Trent”.
