About The Great British Switch

Take part in the Great British Switch this weekend on 14-16 November to see if you can save money on your energy bill and help the elderly.


A report by, has revealed the cold truth of fears the elderly have over energy bills this winter. One in five (20%) of the nation aged 65 and over admit to not using their heating despite feeling cold, and over a third (34%) ration their heating usage. That’s why for every switch this weekend, we will donate £5 to Friends of the Elderly to help keep those most vulnerable warm this winter.   


James Padmore, Head of Energy at said: "We know that the rising cost of energy bills over the winter period is a worry, particularly for the vulnerable in society like the elderly. That’s why we’re working with Friends of the Elderly to rally the nation to help elderly family members, neighbours and friends save money by checking they are being energy efficient and on the best tariff with the Great British Switch."
