Here’s a closer look at some of the main services we provide:

- With so many people staying home, please be extra vigilant around home safety.
- We all have a role to play in keeping your household safe and reducing demand on our stretched emergency services. Remember to test your smoke alarm weekly and let us know if you have any concerns about home safety. We’ve published more advice here.
- First, please give MyCuro - our secure customer portal - a try.
- If you want to ask a question, check whether we already have the answer here.
- If you still need to contact us, our Contact Team remain open as usual from 8am-8pm Monday-Friday. There are many ways to get in touch, however The Maltings and One Stop Shops remain closed to customers.
- Please use digital channels like LiveChat and MyCuro if you can – this helps to free up our phone lines for customers who don’t have access to the internet.
