Here to help our community.

Everyone needs a little extra helping hand. If you’re a vulnerable customer, we’re here to help.

Priority Services Register.

If you’re a vulnerable customer and feel like you need some extra help with managing your energy account, we can add you to our Priority Services Register (PSR). You can add yourself to the register or update your circumstances any time through your online account or by emailing us at hi@eonnext.com.

Speech or hearing impaired customers can also put 18001 in front of our phone number, 0808 501 5200, to use text relay at no extra cost if you'd prefer to contact us by phone. You can find out more on the Relay UK website.

When you’re on the PSR, there are extra things we can do for you to make life easier:

  1. If your energy supply stops unexpectedly, we’ll prioritise reconnecting you straight away.

  2. If you’re struggling to read your bill or statement, let us know and we can help.

  3. You can choose someone to look after your account for you. If they’re happy to do this, we’ll send them your bills or statements.

  4. If you’re worried about security, you can choose a password our team will use to identify themselves.

Gas safety check.

If you’re on our PSR and live alone or with elderly people, someone with a disability or a chronic illness, or live with a child under the age of five, then you could get a free gas safety check.

When you’re on the PSR, there are extra things we can do for you to make life easier. You could be eligible if you meet the following criteria:

  1. You don’t live in a property where the landlord is responsible for sorting your gas safety check.

  2. You haven’t had a gas safety check in the last 12 months.

  3. You get a means-tested benefit.

We’ll send a professional to do the gas safety check, which includes any gas appliances or fittings. To book your gas safety check, call us on 0808 501 5200.
