Why redirect your mail?
It's important you make sure you continue to receive your mail when you move home: - You won't miss important documents - You'll help prevent personal details falling into the wrong hands and becoming a victim of fraud.

To set up a redirection you will need:
- Names and dates of birth of everyone in the household that needs their mail redirected
