Additional support available for the vulnerable

WEALDEN residents who are vulnerable or who rely on electricity for medical equipment can sign up to a special register that could see them receive additional support in the event of a power cut.

The Priority Services Register is open to all local residents who are dependent on medical equipment, chronically sick, disabled, or for others who feel that they have a special case that UK Power Networks should consider.

People who would like more information should call 0800 169 9970 and leave their details.
