Get ready for the winter

Get ready for the winter

Prepare for a safe winter with our 'Let's get ready for winter' leaflet

Winter can be a great time of year but sometimes wintry conditions can disrupt our daily lives.
This leaflet outlines a few simple steps to prepare for winter and has some useful contact information should you need them.

Within the leaflet it explains how to:

  • stay warm during the day and night
  • what to do to find out if you're able to claim financial help for heating your home
  • how to deal with a water pipe which freezes or bursts
  • what you can do to help other people such as clearing snow and ice
  • as well as information on driving in poor weather conditions

At the back of the leaflet we’ve included emergency contact details which may be useful during an emergency.
