Apply for a grant

What’s the Customer Assistance Fund?

Our customer assistance fund can help if you are struggling to pay a water bill. To qualify you’ll need to:

  • Have an outstanding payment from a previous billing year
  • Provide your income and expenditure so we can assess your ability to pay
  • Set up a payment plan for future bills

We've partnered with Auriga Services, a not-for-profit debt advice provider, to offer one-off grants that could help you clear your debt.

What's the Thames Water Trust Fund?

If you’re facing difficult circumstances and can’t afford essential items like a washing machine, cooker, fridge, freezer, bed, an essential household bill or something else, you may qualify for help through the Thames Water Trust Fund, our registered charity and independent grant-making trust.
