The Priority Services Register (PSR) is a way that we can help those who have extra communication, access or safety needs to gain equal access to the best possible service(s) at all times. We understand that it can be a stressful time when your gas supply goes off, especially if you find yourself in a vulnerable situation, and the PSR helps us ensure that you can access the care that you deserve.

To join the Priority Services Register email us or call 0345 835 1111.

What is the Priority Services Register?

The PSR is a completely free service, designed to make it easier for those who need a little extra help. Each energy supplier and electricity network operator maintain their own register, meaning that you can register with us and receive essential benefits that will make the management of your energy supply easier. These include:

  • Providing you with alternative heating and cooking facilities should your gas be interrupted as part of our works.
  • The use of a password facility to keep you safe on your doorstep. You can read more about how we strive to protect you from bogus callers by ensuring that out engineers follow a strict process and must allow you to check their credentials should you not be expecting their call.
  • For the purposes of safety, if you are unable to reach your gas emergency control valve (ECV) due to poor mobility, we may be able to move this for you. To find out if you are eligible for this service, please call us on 0800 0745 788 to talk with one of our team members to discuss it further.
  • Providing translation services should there be a need for it 24/7, 365 days of the year.

At Cadent we are constantly looking at ways to positively improve our processes to raise awareness of the PSR, the services that we offer to support customers to stay safe, warm and independent in their homes and innovations such as the Locking Cooker Valve 

The PSR is an energy industry-wide register – all participating companies are signed up to the PSR Promise.

We’re more than happy to help you get registered, just give us a call on 0345 835 1111 or email wecare@cadentgas.com and one of our team will assist you.

Alternatively, you can also register for the PSR through your own energy supplier. Just give them a call and ask them to do it.

If you’re registering for someone else, you’ll need to contact their supplier and explain your situation. They might want to speak to the person to gain verbal consent where possible but and also have Power of Attorney processes in place to ensure that consent is gained appropriately where there is fluctuating or a lack of mental capacity to gain explicit consent following the relevant legal steps.
