Contact us

To send us an enquiry, or register a new complaint, here’s how to get in touch.


  • Our helpline is busier than usual. You can call us between 8am and 5pm, Monday to Friday and 9am and 1pm on Saturday – but it’s likely that you will need to wait to speak to someone. Where possible, please email us if you have an enquiry about an ongoing case or take a look at our how to complain page, which includes details of how to send us your complaint online.
  • It’s currently taking longer than we’d like to allocate cases to our case handlers for investigation. We’re working to improve waiting times. If we’ve let you know that we’ve received your complaint, we’ll contact you as soon as your case is with someone who can help. We’d be grateful if you could avoid contacting us for an update, unless your circumstances have changed. You can read more about timescales once you’ve sent us a complaint on our page how long it takes.
  • Our colleagues are continuing to work from home, so we hope you’ll be understanding if during your call you hear some background noise from family or pets.
