Our Grants

Since 2013 GST has awarded almost £3 million to a range of gas safety programmes and projects.  Current research involves the Trust working with a range of medical and academic personnel from various areas including victims of CO poisoning, Accident and Emergency services, coroners, and low-income households. 

Applications are invited from researchers, academics and relevant industry partners which will contribute to the prevention and better understanding of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

GST welcomes applications with an interest in CO poisoning from across the disciplines – such as healthcare, biochemistry, engineering, indoor air and behavioural science. 

The grant application period for our 2020 Main Grants call is now open. If you have any questions please contact adrian@gassafetytrust.org..

CO Portal

The CO Portal is the definitive place to find information, updates and learning from our members’ research into carbon monoxide (CO). It brings together the experience in the UK with the developments around the world to help reduce incidences of CO poisoning. The CO Portal has three sections:

  • CO Documents, which holds a variety of standards, legislation, academic resources, and data and reports that have been funded by GST.
  • Downstream Incident Data is a database of reported casualties of CO since 1996. It has been kindly provided by the HSE, British Gas and the Gas Safe Register.
  • Other Data provides a list of links to other data sets, tools and websites related to CO.

About the Gas Safety Trust

The Gas Safety Trust, established in 2005 as a registered charitable body, has become the UK’s leading gas safety research charity with the key objectives of further improving gas/fossil fuel safety for the public and industry throughout the UK and reducing the incidents of death and serious injury from carbon monoxide (CO) exposure. The Trust does this through the funding of research and data collection relating to carbon monoxide poisoning.

We provide grant funding, advice and support to any organisation to carry out research and evidence gathering relating to gas safety. We would currently welcome applications for funding for projects looking at (but not limited to) the following areas:

  • Low level exposure
  • Built environment
  • Medics’ understanding and awareness
  • Leisure activities

Since 2013 we have awarded circa £2 million to a variety of programmes and projects relating to gas/fossil fuel safety and carbon monoxide.
