Keep warm without the worry

Over 1 in 3 people diagnosed with cancer in the last two years say they feel the cold more [1]. The side effects of treatment can make it harder to keep warm, meaning you often need to turn the heat up. This can have a huge impact on energy bills. We’re working with npower to help make sure no one facing cancer is left in the cold. Our Energy Advice Team is here to help on 0808 808 00 00 (Monday to Friday, 9am-8pm).

Over the last 12 years, npower has given more than £8 million to help 32,000 families affected by cancer, with over £5 million pledged until 2018. With npower’s help, we are able to give out around 42 Macmillan Grants for fuel a day, worth an average of £200 each.

npower’s Macmillan Fund

As well as supporting our Energy Advice Team, npower helps their customers who are living with cancer through npower’s Macmillan Fund. The Fund is available to those who are either in active treatment or the terminal phase of cancer, and caps their energy bills at no more than 10% of their income for two years. Eligibility will also take savings into account. This has been worth £4 million to Macmillan callers since 2010, helping them to keep warm without worrying about their energy bills.
