Stay Warm

Here are some tips and advice to keep warm this winter

Eat regular hot meals and have hot drinks.

If possible, keep moving instead of sitting still - activity will get your circulation going and make you feel warmer.

Wrap up warmly indoors and out by wearing several layers of clothing.

Make sure you keep out any draughts, for instance from your letterbox and windows. Keep your curtains closed and shut internal doors to keep warm air from escaping.

The NHS Choices website has more advice about keeping warm in winter. You can also call The National Home Heat Help line on 0800 33 66 99 (Mon - Fri - 9am to 8pm, Sat - 10am to 3pm).
