The Government is joining up with partners in industry and the voluntary sector to encourage families and communities across the country to start making preparations for winter

With the clocks going back on Sunday, it is the perfect time to use the extra hour to think about simple things we can all do to keep warm, healthy and safe through the cold weather – as well as saving money.

The Getting Ready for Winter portal provides advice to families and communities in preparation for the cold months ahead, including simple steps to protect your home and vehicles.

A Cabinet Office spokesperson said:

"It makes sense to take action early before the cold weather strikes.

"Last year, insurance companies received over 100,000 claims for burst pipes, causing hundreds of millions of pounds worth of damage.

Taking small, simple steps can make a big difference when trying keep warm, healthy and safe throughout the winter months. We would encourage families and communities up and down the country to use the hour gained this weekend to start making their winter preparations."
