Priority Services Register for extra services from your energy suppliers

The Priority Services Register (Ofgem) is a scheme where energy suppliers offer extra free services to disabled people, pensioners and those with long-term ill health.

Services which might be available include:

  • advance notice of planned power cuts
  • priority support in an emergency
  • identification scheme
  • communications to someone you have nominated
  • meter reading services
  • accessible information, such as larger print or Braille

Find your supplier’s website (Ofgem) and sign up for their Priority Services Register.

If you have different suppliers for electricity and gas, you will need to register with each. If you have a carer, they can register on your behalf. There is no charge and you can register for all or some of the services.
