We're helping local community projects thrive

 

 

We’re helping community projects and charities grow with Community Partnerships

 

We’re not fans of throwing money at switching sites to get more customers.  We’d much rather spend that money where it’s needed.

So, we decided to launch Community Partnerships!

 

What are they?

Community Partnerships aim to further empower community projects by allowing them to accrue financial rewards for referring members to People’s Energy.  It’s super simple, all you need to do is enter the code for your project or charity when you sign up and we’ll donate £10 per fuel.

You can sign up and support your project or charity by clicking the button below, completing the signup process with People’s Energy, and entering your code on the final screen.  Once we see you’ve joined we’ll send your donation straight into your chosen charity.

Forgot to enter your code?  Not to worry, you can do so here!

Don’t have the code for your charity?  Give them a call and they’ll happily provide you with theirs.

 

Have a project of your own?

Let us know!  If you’d like help to fund your project or cause then get in touch.  There’s never a cost to our partners and we’ll help as best we can.

Our Partners

Harrison's Fund

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the most common genetic killer of children, currently affecting 2500 children in the UK. Duchenne is a cruel, progressive muscle-wasting condition that works silently and steadily in the child’s body. Diagnosis normally happens before the child starts school when parents first notice their children aren’t as mobile as some. Their decline will continue, leading to the need for a powered wheelchair round the age of 12, total paralysis in late teens and an average life expectancy of just mid-twenties.

Although it may not feel like it, there is hope for families facing a catastrophic diagnosis of Duchenne. Harrison’s Fund has one goal- to get as much money as possible into the hands of the world’s leading researchers to fund effective treatments for children with Duchenne. Our research, powered by amazing fundraising is getting scientists closer to a cure. We’re here to change the futures of these families and we simply won’t stop until children, like our namesake Harrison, can live their lives free from the profound effects of Duchenne.

We are delighted that People’s Energy are getting behind Harrison’s Fund and raising money to arm us in the fight against Duchenne.

Teapot Trust

Teapot Trust was founded to fight inequality in psychological support for chronically ill children and young people. We provide professional art therapists in hospitals across the UK, as the process of creating art can help children to deal with situations beyond their control. We help children develop healthy management skills to cope with their condition into adulthood; and through art communicate, feelings, hopes and fears for which they cannot find words.

Teapot Trust began in Edinburgh in 2010 and we now provide 24 art therapy projects in hospitals ranging from Inverness to London, with six more services opening this year.

Since 2010 we have provided over 24,450 interactions with children and young people (an interaction is defined as a child or young person attending an Open Group, Ward-based or 1:1 art therapy session.)

“When a child is disabled, has special needs or a chronic medical condition, life is affected so much. It’s not only them who suffer but the entire family and extended members of that family are affected too. … When she started art therapy a few months ago, her life transformed, her self-esteem increased and so did her confidence, making everyone in the family smile a bit more.” Mother of A, aged 8

We are excited that the People’s Energy Trust is partnering with us to help raise funds and awareness for the Teapot Trust; putting ‘energy in our tank’ to help us achieve our ambitious and exciting goals.
