Cost of living support - banner

We have produced a booklet giving, energy efficiency and home improvement advice to help you to live safe, stay well and keep healthy in your home.

The Healthy Homes, Healthy People booklet has been designed to make sure that anyone living in Central Bedfordshire can access support and advice to stay warm and well. The advice in the booklet includes:

  • helping you to stay well: information on flu jabs, NHS Health Checks, prescriptions and  other support services 
  • cold and hot weather advice: how to keep your home warm and keep the heat in during winter, and how to keep yourself cool in summer
  • benefits: ensuring you are claiming everything you are entitled to, and information and support services
  • tips for your home: how simple changes can make your home warmer, comfortable and safer with the potential to save you money

We also have a dedicated information hub for anyone concerned about the cost of living, which includes information about funding for vulnerable residents to help with food, energy and water bills and other wider essentials, as well as information about warm spaces across Central Bedfordshire for people to use when temperatures drop.
