Giving Back


We aim to be a responsible neighbour in the communities in which we operate.  This includes working with local communities and their representatives in providing financial support for certain community projects and/or initiatives.

In 2019 we are pleased to be sponsoring, for the seventh consecutive year, the Young Engineers Competition in Lancashire. Creating new skills and jobs is one of our top priorities as we aim to meet the challenge of supplying cost effective, secure and safe energy for the future. There is a prize fund of £12,000 up for grabs to improve STEM facilities within schools and foster the engineers of the future.

Over the last few years, Cuadrilla has sponsored AFC Fylde Community Foundation’s ‘Train Like A Pro’ football development programme, which has provided equal and inclusive access to sports and enrichment programmes to children from disadvantaged backgrounds throughout the Fylde Coast. We have expanded this partnership to include a number of new projects, from adult education programmes to community-based family sports schemes, in order to provide more people positive opportunities not currently available to them.

Community Sponsorship & Donations Policy

In considering requests for and making payments to support community causes or projects, Cuadrilla assesses each proposal on a case by case basis, however we prioritise:

  • Events/initiatives supporting the development and education of young people particularly in the areas of science and engineering;
  • Events/initiatives with strong links to the local community and/or supporting community cohesion close to existing or proposed shale sites or within active shale exploration licenses.

Cuadrilla maintains accurate and up to date records of all donations and payments made to community causes and/or projects and publishes these annually. The 2018 record can be found here.

Cuadrilla will not provide charitable support to:

  • Individuals (scholarships, stipends, fellowships, personal assistance);
  • Religious groups for religious purposes;
  • Lobbying or political activities.
