Here at The Quays we are getting very excited about the High Street Voucher campaign which is launching shortly in Northern Ireland. Every adult over 18 in the region will be eligible to apply for it and the money can only be spent in bricks and mortar retail stores.
The Quays has so much to offer no matter how you want to treat yourself, be it a food shop at M&S, a family visit to the Omniplex, wine from Sainsbury's, homeware from Sostrene Grene, kidswear at Next and much much more.
We will also be helping you to make your voucher go a little further by surprising customers shopping on mall with our Random Acts of Kindness..... more details to follow soon :-)
HOW TO APPLY FOR YOUR VOUCHER ONCE THE PORTAL OPENS:
- Register online on NI Direct. You will be presented with an information page on the High Street Scheme and a button to launch the registration process.
8 pieces of information will be requested during the registration process; Name, Address, DOB, Gender, Disability, NI Number, Driving Licence number (optional) and mobile phone number and email address.
You can register to complete an application on behalf of a limited number of other people, however, you must have their permission and their personal details.
Following completion of the online registration process, you will receive an email confirming the receipt of the application. The information provided will first be checked against electoral register database followed by Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency. This is an automated process with no access to your personal information.
Once your identity has been confirmed the details required to complete the process will be sent to the pre-paid card provider and you will receive an email to inform you that the registration process is now complete and when you should expect to receive your card.
If you are unsuccessful in the first phase of checks then your identity will be checked against a further suite of government databases. If you identity is confirmed then your details will be forwarded to the pre-paid card provider and you will receive a confirmation email. If your application is unsuccessful, you will be informed and directed to the appeals process.
