Support for vulnerable people in a power cut

Older people and people with health problems can be especially vulnerable during a cold snap, or in the event of an unexpected power cut. 

UK Power Networks can offer additional support to vulnerable people during power cuts. If you are on their list of registered people then they can take action in the event of a power cut to ensure that you receive priority support.
