By signing up to Yorkshire Water’s Priority Services Register, you can get quicker access to bottled water, in case of flooding or supply stoppages this winter.
The Register is free to sign-up to and supports older customers or those who
may be in ‘vulnerable’ circumstances, whether these circumstances are temporary or permanent.
During emergency incidents, Yorkshire Water prioritise contact for Priority Services Register customers who may be more severely impacted by a loss of water supply or other incident.
Any householder aged over 65 can sign up and Yorkshire Water don’t ask for any evidence or proof when you sign up to their register. It is also recommended for anyone with mobility issues, a disability or a chronic or serious illness.
If you are asked to be a nominee for someone else – you can sign up on their behalf.
