Steve backs support for vulnerable energy consumers

Steve has joined an Ofgem drive to publicise the Priority Service Register; designed to provide information and support to vulnerable energy consumers


Steve joined an Ofgem drive last week to increase the take-up of free services available from energy suppliers. These services are available to vulnerable people who sign up to the Priority Service Register (PSR).


The Priority Service Register is a list of domestic customers who are of pensionable age, disabled or chronically sick.  Each energy supplier is required to have their own PSR and to provide free help to people who add themselves, or are referred, to their list.


Steve said:


“Currently there are over 2 million people signed up to a Priority Service Register, but many more eligible people remain unaware that it exists and what benefits it could bring them.


“Ofgem’s new form is a quick and simple way to sign up and gain access to free services for those that need them most. I am working with and for constituents to raise awareness of the PSR and urge people to sign up now.


“Ofgem have launched a new referral form to make it even easier to sign up to the PSR which can be requested from my office on 0121 443 3911.”
