Get winter ready
This winter it’s more important than ever to stay safe and well. We’ve shared some helpful resources to help you look after yourself and your family.
There are a few things you can do to look after yourself...
Check if you’re entitled to a flu vaccination with your doctor and take advantage of it if you can. It’s also worth stocking up on any medications you need as flu and colds are more likely at this time of year.
Keep on top of your budget

Consider having lights on a timer, set an alarm if you have one and make sure all doors and windows are locked.
Looking after your own mental health and wellbeing is important too. The NHS has some really great advice, like this five steps to mental wellbeing.
Stay in touch
You’re not alone and many people can help. Stay in regular socially distanced contact with family and friends and remember, we’re here.
Heat your home
Keep your home at a constant temperature, ideally 18–21oC. This will help you stay warm and well and also help reduce your fuel bill.
If you have a pre-paid meter and you are worried about running out of credit on your pre-payment meter, get in touch with your energy provider. The government has asked them to make sure they help their customers in this situation.
With winter just around the corner, it’s really important to keep warm which will in turn help you stay safe.
