Health & wellbeing support

We want to support our customers to look after their health and wellbeing, both mental and physical. If you feel you're struggling with any aspect of your health and wellbeing, you can talk to your neighbourhood manager who can offer advice on which support services are available and may be able to refer you to a particular service.  

We are pleased to be able to offer customers access to a health and wellbeing service through our insurers. Zurich General Insurance Support Services can provide up to five free sessions of confidential professional counselling – face to face, by phone or video. They can also give impartial practical support including financial and legal information. Their freephone helpline is available 24 hours a day on 0800 288 4956. Find out more here.

Delighted to see this update from the YMCA Green Shoots nursery in Studley Green. The charity was awarded a grant from our Stronger Communities Fund to help block pave a gravelled area of the garden, opening it up for more children to use. The paved areas provide a smooth surface and an area for those who need smaller, quieter spaces to play in. ... See MoreSee Less

Many boilers will need to have their system pressure topped up with water at some stage. To check if your boiler needs to be topped up, locate the pressure gauge on the front of the system. If the dial is too low and is in the red, then you will need to repressurise it. If your boiler's pressure is too low, it can prevent the system from heating up efficiently, which could lead to a loss of hot water. If your boiler's pressure is too high, you can request an appointment for our repairs team to come out to your home: ecs.page.link/bbvqK ... See MoreSee Less

Lol, I topped my pressure up on my boiler after being shown.. but what the engineer forgot to mention is the pressure increases when heating is on anyway, so don't pressurise when off as like me my pressure was over 4 and I needed an emergency call out . It is not as easy as just being shown.
