CO-Gas Safety is an independent registered charity run almost entirely by volunteers.

Company Number 3084435 | Charity Number 104370

The only industry funding we receive is from Kane International. In the past, the gas emergency service providers supported our schools poster competition, which they then took over from us in 2017. We have no secure funding for the collection, collation or publication of our data. Nor do we have any secure funding to support victims and their families. We did receive a substantial donation in 2015, and another separate one in 2020, although we had to agree not to make public the amount or the names of donors.

Please note that we receive no government funding whatsoever.

In the past we have been lucky enough to have received grants from the Department of Health but due to the cut backs now have no government funding at all. Department of Health funding will only be granted to new projects. The last government funding we received was of about £2,000 in April 2013.

We need funding to continue collecting data on deaths and injuries, which you can see here.

Our data is almost certainly the best data on CO deaths in the UK and has been used by government. We are shocked that our data is better than government’s (HSE basically only collects gas-related CO deaths and in the past hasn’t checked with Coroners, although we have been told in November 2014 that HSE does now check) and other bodies (such as the well funded Gas Safe Charity and CO Research Trust, formerly Gas Safety Trust). We try to check most deaths with Coroners and we have built up a good relationship with them as we have been doing this since 1995. We also check with other bodies, such as the Solid Fuel Association, which has always been extremely helpful to us.

We also need funding to continue to answer the telephone and give advice to survivors and families of the bereaved.

Please feel free to send us a donation. Any sum, however small, would be very welcome.
