Northumberland MP Ian Lavery has been informing his Wansbeck Constituents about new developments with Northern Powergrid:
Mr Lavery said; “I have been contacted by Northern Powergrid to explain more about their process of supporting vulnerable constituents in Wansbeck during Power Cuts.
For anybody experiencing a power cut it can be a huge inconvenience, but for the elderly and most vulnerable, it can be extremely frightening and may jeopardise their health.
Northern Powergrid has a Priority Services Register which ensures that customers listed as vulnerable receive extra support during a Power Cut. This includes an enhanced service with additional contact and hot drinks and snacks.
Please share this message with as many friends and family as possible, I would highly recommend any elderly, disabled or vulnerable constituents signing up to be on this register. You can do this by visiting www.northernpowergrid.com/care
If you have problems accessing or using the internet, please don’t hesitate to contact my office on 01670852494, we will be happy to help you complete the sign-up process.”
