Whilst The Beacon is closed due to protective measures against coronavirus (COVID-19), phone lines are only open 9am - 4pm and will be diverted to available staff. We currently have limited Customer Service staffing, so waiting times may be longer. 

You can still find answers to FAQs here or send us an email, though responses may take longer than usual. You can also view our coronavirus response here.
