Supporting our local foodbanks this Christmas

helping our community

We’ve been supporting our local Trussell Trust foodbanks this Christmas.
Over the last week, we’ve donated much-needed goods and products to foodbanks in Oldham, Coventry and Sheffield, and provided funding for projects near to our Norwich and Slough depots.
We’re donating to foodbanks in Hinckley and Birmingham – they’ve asked if we can make our donation next year, at a time when stocks are depleted. So, we’ll be back in touch with them early in 2020.
We have also had teams volunteer time to help sort mountains of donated goods in Liverpool, so that they can be stocked and in order, ready for distribution in a number of foodbanks in the south of the city.
And, we're making a £5,000 donation this Christmas to another cause that's very close to our heart - our corporate charity since 2017, Alzheimer’s Society. We help our employees and the wider community understand more about the issues that dementia presents for our customers, and how we can best support people who live with it.
We have a proud connection to the villages, towns and cities we’re based in, and to the 11 million+ customers we distribute a safe supply of gas to. We don’t just work in these communities, we live in them too.
Cadent can trace its roots to these communities back to the 19th century, providing the local gas emergency response service and managing the huge network of 80,000 miles of underground gas mains and hundreds of above-ground installations.

We are very much a part of the local community. It's in our DNA to look out for and look after people, however and whenever we can.


Cadent is the UK’s largest gas distribution network with a 200-year legacy.  We are in a unique position to build on strong foundations whilst encouraging the curiosity to think differently and the courage to embrace change.  Day to day we continue to operate, maintain and innovate the UK’s largest gas network, transporting gas safely and protecting people in an emergency.   Our skilled engineers and specialists remain committed to the communities we serve, working day and night to ensure gas reaches 11 million homes from Cumbria to North London and the Welsh Borders to East Anglia, to keep your energy flowing. 

Future of Gas: Here at Cadent we support the Government’s plans to reach Net Zero by 2050. That means we’re backing the introduction of hydrogen as a low carbon alternative to natural gas for the future. We know people love the controllability of gas and, with our network already in place, it makes sense to switch to the lower carbon alternative offered by hydrogen, which we believe can keep homes and businesses warm for generations to come.
