Keep Warm and Well this Winter

Being cold is not just uncomfortable; living in a cold home can harm your health.  It can exacerbate a range of health conditions such as respiratory and cardiovascular disease, asthma attacks in children, and impact on mental well-being.

Partners across East Sussex are working together through the East Sussex Energy Partnership (ESEP) to address the impact of cold homes and fuel poverty, and a range of initiatives have been put in place to help vulnerable people this winter, including a free Winter Home Check service for the most vulnerable people in East Sussex and provision of free repairs, insulation and other measures in the home where required.

Below is a leaflet giving Top Tips on how to stay warm this winter.
