Our home should be the one place we feel completely safe and secure, but accidents can, and do, happen. We’ve listed some essential winter home safety tips to keep you and the family safe throughout the colder months ahead.
Keep your home warm
The colder weather can pose a risk for more vulnerable members of the family. Those over the age of 65, under the age of five, or with health conditions may need more help keeping warm this winter.
The NHS recommends keeping your home heated to at least 18C for those over 65, those who aren’t very mobile or are unwell. They recommend maintaining a temperature of between 16C and 20C for babies.
