Unfortunately, you can’t switch water suppliers, so you will have to let Northumbrian Water deal with your complaint. If Northumbrian Water doesn’t deal with your complaint to their standards, they promise to pay you £50 compensation.


You can also contact the Customer Care Review Team, with the Northumbrian Water contact number, to look into your complaint if you are not happy with any aspect of your complaint and how it’s being dealt with.

After eight weeks, if your complaint is still unresolved, you can take your complaint to the Consumer Council for Water (CCW) who are an independent body, akin to an Ombudsman, who will investigate your complaint further and mediate between Northumbrian Water and yourself.

You can contact CCW in the following ways:

CCW Complaint Contact Method CCW Complaint Contact

Don’t take your complaint to Ofwat! If you have a complaint, do not take it to the water regulator Ofwat as they will be unable to help you. Ofwat only deals with anti-competitive behaviour in the water industry and does not deal with the individual complaints against water suppliers. The CCW is the correct body.
