Customers who need extra support
Support for vulnerable customers
All our teams are trained to support customers who have a vulnerability or an additional support requirement and if we’ve recorded that need, our advisors will know each time the customer makes contact. For example, a customer who has difficulty hearing and prefers all communication via email will not get a phone call from us.
Ways we can offer extra support
- If you need your bills in braille, large print and audio, just let us know
- If you have difficulties speaking or hearing, you can use the New Generation Text Service (NGTS) app. This allows you to type what you want to say and an assistant will say the words for you. The assistant can also type the other person’s replies for you to read. Find out more on our NGTS Help & Support pageor on the NGTS website
- If you’d prefer to be contacted by email only or would like extra support, we’re here to help
- You can contact us by phone, email, text service, letter, web chat or via social media. Look at our Contact us page for details
