There is a range of information available from many different sources relating to keeping warm and well, in winter.
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. Information is also available from North Yorkshire County Council. Please select the link below for further information on their website.
If you are in rented property and you believe your heating is inadequate, please contact the Council's Private Sector Housing team, contact details to the right, with a a view to arranging an inspection by an Environmental Health Officer.
