Nuisance Calls

Nuisance calls remain a source of annoyance and frustration for many; and for some they can cause anxiety or involve scams and fraud.

OFCOM, the communications regulator, has hard copies of a short guide that you can obtain as a consumer experiencing problems with such calls. The guide is in an ‘Easy Read’ format, which presents information clearly and simply, using pictures to support the meaning of the text. 

This guide has information on the different types of nuisance call, tips for reducing such calls, and on how to complain about them. You can see a copy of the guide here:

You can find further advice for consumers on nuisance calls on OFCOM’s website:, including a short educational video guide, which is available in subtitles to help people with hearing impairments.
