Social Access Package

If you receive financial support, our Social Access Package is a simple, low cost way to help you stay in touch with the people important to you. Our Social Access Packages are only available to customers who pass the following criteria.

  • Income Support
  • Pension Credit
  • Job Seekers Allowance
  • Housing Benefit
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Universal Credit, with zero earnings*
  • Care Home residents and Lifeline customers who are referred to us via Social Services

*This means the person claiming the Universal Credit doesn't receive any earnings from employment or self-employment during their Universal Credit assessment period.

Anyone applying must provide us with proof of eligibility with their application. The person eligible (as above) must also be the person whose name is on the bill.

Applying for Social Access Package

Call us on 01482 602555. You'll need to fill in an application form and return it to us with some personal information. We need this information so we can check your records with the Department for Work and Pensions. These records help us to find out whether you are eligible for SAP.

If we need any more information, we'll contact you. If we have everything we need, we'll tell you whether your application is successful. If you don't qualify, we'll write to you to let you know.

If your circumstances change and you're no longer in receipt of one of these benefits, you must notify us so we can review your entitlement to SAP.

Who can't have it?

We can't provide you with our Social Access package service if:

  • You can't provide evidence of the above or are not the person named on the bill
  • You already have a telephone service from another supplier
  • You have more than one line at the same or different premises (unless you have a second line because you're responsible for paying the telephone bill for a relative)
  • Your line is an ISDN line
  • Your line is used exclusively in connection with a burglar alarm or other monitoring services
  • You have ceased and had service re-provided in the last 3 months
  • Your service has been restricted because you owe us money
