Get ready for winter

Now's a good time to think about what winter weather preparations you, your family and community may need to make.

We're continuing to support the 'get ready for winter' campaign. This campaign was originally launched on the direct.gov website in the winter of 2011-2012, but still remains applicable.

See direct.gov for information on how to ensure you're fully prepared for this year's winter in the following areas:

  • protecting your home
  • health and wellbeing
  • travelling
  • communities

With respect to clearing ice and snow from the pavement outside your house, see the government guidance.
