npower has been one of Macmillan’s biggest supporters since 2004, and the launch of our Fuel Management Programme (FMP) in 2007 was one of our most successful joint initiatives of these last 11 years.
The FMP aims to support npower customers who have been diagnosed with cancer and are living in fuel poverty, by giving them a reduced payment plan. This helps them at a time when their energy needs have grown, but their income has often dropped due to their cancer treatment.
The FMP has helped over 2,700 npower customers affected by cancer, and npower has provided over £2.5 million worth of debt relief and support to help those people stay warm. In recognition of this achievement, in 2013 we won the Best Single Project award at the prestigious Third Sector Business Charity Awards.

We’re proud to work with Macmillan on the Fuel Management Programme, a truly sector-leading initiative. Not only is it an innovative initiative, but it delivers a very real positive impact on the lives of people living with cancer – something that is hugely important to both npower, and Macmillan.
