    Dear all,

    people living in wales can claim a discount from welsh water. they operate a discount scheme for vulnerable groups. These
    include a family with 3 or more children under 16 or people with certain medical conditions one of which is incontinence. To be eligible you also need to be claiming one of the following.
    * income support
    * income based jobseekers allowance
    * new working family tax credit
    * pension credit
    * housing benefit
    * council tax benefit
    * child tax credit

    your bill will be £286.85 a year & you need to have a water meter installed . Will only benefit if you spend over £24 a month on water . For application form contact publications hotline on 0800 0520138.

    They also have a special needs register . If you are placed on register you will be provided with water from an alternative supply if there is a loss of supply due to burst main for example.

    Finally they also operate a redirection service for callers so you can register to have any callers to house sent to another address such as relative for their identity to be verified first & accompanied to house by relative if required. Again aimed at vulnerable & to try to avoid bogus callers gaining entry.

    got information from leaflet that came with bill. Every little helps.

    take care all

    Helen
