We understand that customers who are elderly or disabled or have certain medical conditions may have extra need and concerns.
We have developed a range of services to help. Details of how to apply are listed at the end of this page.
We can send out bills or correspondence in large print or Braille.
We can provide a talking bill service. When your bill is produced we will telephone you to tell you how much it is before posting it.
We can arrange for your bill to be sent to someone chosen by you. This may be helpful if you find it difficult to handle, read or understand your bill.
If you receive your water supply from us and have difficulty reading the water meter because it is hard for you to reach, we can arrange for it to be read regularly and for you to receive details of the readings.
If you are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech difficulties you can use:
• A Minicom service, available on 0330 303 1265 (calls charged at local rate) from 8am–7pm, Monday to Friday, and 8.30am–2pm on Saturday
• Type talk relay service
Our staff are trained to offer friendly, helpful advice on anything to do with the water supply or wastewater service we supply.
We can arrange for someone to visit you at home at a time agreed with you for advice on water efficiency or how to pay your bills.
