How To Register

If you can, go to your utlility providers' websites as there should be information regarding all aspects of the register. You can also phone using the number from a recent bill if you do not have internet access.

Do explain your situation in full and emphasise any medical conditions that rely on regular and constant supply.  You will need to register again if you change supplier.
