The best way to get accurate energy bills is by submitting regular meter readings. It’s quick and easy to do online – and it means you’ll only pay for what you’ve used.

Engineers across the country have been supporting local food banks with the @TrussellTrust. Using their vans, they've been able to deliver thousands of food parcels every day to people who need it most. Great work team! 💙

We’re still here for our customers affected by the #LeicesterLockdown. So if you live in the area and need our help, read our updated FAQs to find out how we can support you while keeping everyone safe.

Thank you, these donations will go a long way!

We’re aware of fake emails being sent telling people they’ve got an overdue bill – these aren't from us. If you receive one that you don't think is from us, don’t click any links. Please attach it to a new email and send to phishing@centrica.com. Then delete it straight away.

As we can’t help with all appointments at this time, our engineers are solving common problems, from their very own homes.

Many of the UK’s unpaid carers have been needing support more than ever. Through our partnership with @CarersUK, they’re now able to keep their helpline and email service running from Monday to Friday every week – giving unpaid carers the vital support and advice they need.

This #CarersWeek, we’re making caring visible with @CarersUK. Join them for a week of virtual events, like ‘Care for a Cuppa’ and Q&As to bring carers together to support one another.

70% of unpaid carers are having to provide more care for their loved ones during the coronavirus outbreak. We’re continuing to work with @CarersUK to help carers get the support they need.

Keeping our customers and engineers safe is our top priority. When our engineers visit customers’ homes, they’ll keep at least two metres away from everyone in the home at all times - ideally by staying in a different room.

We're helping the @TrussellTrust to support those in crisis by delivering 50,000 food parcels a month.

For our Worcester team, that meant loading their vans with two extra large pallets of food and taking them to their local food bank – these vans can really fit a lot in!

As we can only carry out emergency repairs at the moment, our engineers are helping to solve some common problems, from their own homes.
