Severn Trent Trust Fund is an independent grant making trust first set up in 1997.
A registered charity; the Trust is helping people out of poverty and debt - thanks to generous donations by the UK Midlands based water company, Severn Trent Water Limited.
The policy and grant making is overseen by independent Trustees who ensure that the money goes where it is most needed.
In early 2005 we converted to 'company limited by guarantee' status (Company No 5338827) with day to day management and administration delegated to our wholly owned subsidiary Auriga Services Ltd who use their expertise to administer other Trusts and to keep costs down.
People unable to meet the cost of water charges and who live in the Severn Trent Area can apply for help.
Criteria for applying for a grant toward Water/Sewerage Charges:
A grant will only be given where it is considered that the applicant would be able, in the future, to manage a sustainable budget for essential expenditure without getting into further debt.
The form must be completed in full with all sections answered as comprehensively as
possible. Please remember you are competing for limited funds.
We regret that applications for help with water debt will NOT be considered if the application contains insufficient information.

The Trust is also able to make grants available to organisations to support debt and money advice work. For more details just click on 'Information for Organisations'
