Trading Standards on hand to beat nuisance calls
Published: 16 February 2022
Residents need to satisfy certain criteria to qualify for the devices, which are proven to block up to 98% of nuisance calls. To qualify for a call blocker residents need to:
Live in West Sussex; regularly receive scam and nuisance calls; have care or support needs due to factors such as age, mobility or mental health.
Relatives, carers or friends can also apply on behalf of West Sussex residents who meet the criteria. There are only a limited number of call blockers and priority will be to those most vulnerable and at risk but please do get in touch with West Sussex so they can offer their advice and support.
