On this page you will find information about care registers and how they can help you if you have a cut in supply of electricity or water.
Details of the scheme
If you or someone in your home is dependent on a water supply or electrical equipment for daily care then you can sign up to a Care Register.
The scheme is offered by both Northern Ireland Electricity Networks (NIE Networks) and Northern Ireland Water (NI Water).
If you have a cut in supply, having someone on the register means that contact details are prioritised by the relevant service supplier.
They will also contact you ahead of any planned outages, advising of the planned length of time that you may be affected in supply to allow you enough time to make other arrangements.
This service is of particular benefit for people who rely on medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, home dialysis machines and vital signs monitoring equipment.
