Safe, Healthy, Well
SAFE, HEALTHY AND WELL
Bedford Borough Council has launched an online
leaflet which hosts a wealth of information to help people to stay
safe, healthy and well this season - and often at no cost!
The ‘Safe, Healthy and Well’
leaflet offers advice on how to reduce your energy bills and keep
warm in winter. It also signposts to a range of services including
schemes available for insulation, heating and safety improvements,
pension and benefits advice plus details about keeping healthy
during the cold winter months.
Cllr Colleen Atkins, Executive Member for Adults
Services, at Bedford Borough Council, said: “We want residents to
be safe, healthy, and well, so, to help make this winter easier for
people, we have produced this excellent publication which has lots
of useful tips about how to keep warm and well. Important contact
details and information are within its pages about the many types
of help that are on hand including energy saving advice.”
Importantly, the leaflet also lists eligibility
criteria regarding government schemes and local initiatives.
Details of other organisations keen to help residents of
Bedford Borough are publicised throughout.
