A Little Change

Spread a little love every month with A Little Change by donating through your Octopus Energy bills.

Our customers ask us on an almost daily basis how they can support people who are struggling with their energy costs. That’s why at the beginning of the energy crisis we set up the A Little Change tool. Simply select how much you’d like to donate each month and we’ll take it off your bill. You can opt out in one click too!

It’s a simple way to make a positive impact on every bill.

Your donation will be split between National Energy Action, who work to combat fuel poverty in the UK; Citizens Advice, who offer free, impartial advice on everything from consumer rights to debt, energy and housing; and Renewable World, who improve access to clean energy in communities in Kenya and Nepal.

Since 2022 we’ve donated over almost half a million pounds to National Energy Action and Citizens Advice, and we’re now proud to be adding Renewable World too!

Re-introducing Renewable World

We’ve previously invested in Renewable World to bring clean cooking stoves to families in Rwanda and Somalia, and restore boreholes in parts of Rwanda to reduce carbon emissions and dramatically improve the lives of people in the area.

Now, with your help, we are going to directly support a genuinely impactful renewable energy project in Kenya: Clean Energy for Health.

Your donation will go toward providing remote health centres with solar energy, and building 8 off-grid health posts in Kenya. These will improve health equipment, water filtration systems, handwashing stations, and toilet facilities, and have the potential to help over 43,000 people across Kenya to access better operated and maintained health centres.

Charities we donate to on your behalf

NEA - Action for warmer homes

Registered Charity Number: 290511

We should all be able to keep warm and healthy at home, but millions of people are struggling to afford the energy they need to do so. Each year around 10,000 people die as a result of living in a cold home. Cold homes can also cause or worsen a range of serious health conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, bronchitis, and asthma; can have a significant impact on mental health and is a known risk factor for suicide. National Energy Action (NEA) works towards eradicating fuel poverty across the UK and enables millions of people to live in a warm home.

They give people the knowledge and confidence they need to find a way forward - whoever they are, and whatever their problem.
