How do I contact the helpline
Call free on 0808 808 1000. Helpline hours are Monday to Thursday: 9am to 4pm.
We are not open on bank holidays.
The helpline can get very busy and we answer as many calls as possible, but if you can't get through, please leave a message and we’ll get back to you. Unfortunately, we can't return calls to numbers that bar or do not accept calls from withheld or anonymous numbers.
We aim to respond within three working days, but at busier times or for complex enquiries it may take longer.
