Guide to getting ready for winter
As the days get shorter and the temperature drops there's no disputing that winter is on its way.
While winter brings festive celebrations, long walks in the crisp seasonal sunshine and cosy nights in front of the television, for some people this isn't a time of year they look forward to.

This guide covers a range of topics including how to stay fit and healthy in the cold with flu jabs and a NHS Health Check, making your money go further and financial help available, such as Cold Weather Payments, and how to prepare your home and car.
It also discusses the importance of getting out and about and staying active despite the weather, includes ideas for tackling loneliness and information about the free support available from a range of different organisations.
