How do I get my bills and statements in a format I can read?

Companies have a legal obligation under the Equality Act to make 'reasonable adjustments' like this for you. If they refuse, you can find further information and advice about your rights on the GovUK website:

You can also ask for a note to be added to your account to highlight that you have sight loss or another impairment, so that when you are contacted by the bank or utility service they are aware of your situation and better able to help.
