Targeted support for the most vulnerable

Between April 2021 to March 2026, we have £8.6m to spend on projects which can support consumers in vulnerable situations or raise the awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide and keep people safe from the ‘silent killer’.

It’s called the Vulnerability and Carbon Monoxide Allowance (VCMA), and we can spend 75% of the money on projects in our network area, while 25% will be spent on collaborative projects with the other gas networks in England and Scotland.

If you have a project that you think we should take up, either by ourselves or collaboratively with other gas networks, then click the button below. If you have any questions about the VCMA funding, or would like a call back to discuss, please email us at
