Supported by local health and care organisations in Norfolk and Waveney the latest Warm and Well Campaign is being launched to help people stay as well as possible during the cold months ahead.
This Flood Action Week (20-26 November) the Environment Agency is urging people to prepare for increased weather extremes. Communities are advised to know their flood risk following this year’s record-breaking weather, most recently with Storms Babet and Ciaran. The average cost of flooding to a home is around £30,000 and the mental health impacts are long lasting, research shows.
The government is offering funding for projects that aim to use nature to increase flood resilience, but time is short so put your expression of interest in soon.
Norfolk resilience Forum and Norfolk County Council offer advice on how to be prepared for flooding events.
Flooding presents a number of risks to health. This guidance helps professionals and the public address those risks and clean up safely.
