‘Keep Warm Keep Well’ leaflet gives advice on staying healthy in cold weather
During the cold weather, the Department of Health’s ‘Keep Warm Keep Well’ leaflet is a useful resource for the public, especially the over 60s, low-income families and people with a disability.
It gives advice on staying well in cold weather and the financial help that is available, covering issues such as healthy lifestyle, flu jabs and heating.
‘Keep Warm Keep Well’ is part of the Department’s Cold Weather Plan, which aims to protect people’s health and reduce harm from severe cold.
If you are planning on going on holiday for half-term please be encouraged to leave the heating on. With the temperatures being so cold this will certainly assist in the avoidance of frozen/burst pipe work.
Please also be advised to turn off water supplies to your outside toilets during these severe cold periods, if you cannot turn off the water supply please contact our Customer Services Team
