Have you got the power?
Power cuts can be irritating and inconvenient but for some people they can be dangerous and debilitating. If you or a friend, relative or neighbour are in the latter category, please consider registering with UK Power Networks who provide a priority service for people who may be particularly adversely affected by a breakdown in electricity supply.
People in need who register will have access to a 24-hour phone number for updates and will receive extra information and regular updates. If a power cut is protracted, they could also be eligible for free hot food, water, mobile-phone charging and so on. People who need electricity for medical reasons, such as dialysis or breathing apparatus, would also receive additional help.
More information can be found online.
