Carillion Amey - Change to opening hours of Occupancy Services Helpdesk

 From 1 March 2015 the opening hours of the CarillionAmey (CA) Occupancy Services Helpdesk, which manages Service Family Accommodation in the UK, will change to 0830 – 1500hrs (previously 0800 – 1800hrs).

Our aim is to enhance the overall effectiveness of our service so this change is being introduced since call data shows that customers prefer to call the Occupancy Services team between 0900 – 1500hrs.  It will enable the team to use the time outside of the new telephone opening hours to concentrate on processing and quality checking applications; responding to emails; updating JPA; and improving our understanding of our customers’ needs. 

The opening hours of the maintenance Helpdesk are not affected, which continues to be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

All services can be accessed by calling 0800 707 6000.  Further information is also available at www.carillionamey.co.uk.

The Royal British Legion recently launched its latest campaign Insult to Injury. The campaign calls on the Government to stop injured veterans having to use their military compensation to pay for social care.

In particular, the Legion will be campaigning to ensure that veterans on the War Pension scheme don’t see their compensation award used to pay towards the costs of their social care.

The campaign could see War Pensioners being on average £74 per week better off. 

Visit the Legion’s campaign website to find out more and to contact your MP. The Legion is also hoping to hear from people who may be affected themselves or have family members that are – if you’d be happy to share your story, please email insulttoinjury@britishlegion.org.uk
