Prepare for 'Arctic' Weather

Prepare for 'Arctic' Weather

At Disability Sheffield we know just how important it is to stay warm throughout the winter, particularly if you have a disability or long term health condition.

NHS England’s ‘Stay Well This Winter’ campaign encourages pregnant women, people over 65, people with long-term health conditions, parents of 2-6 year olds, and carers to take action to stay warm and healthy over the winter. For more information view website .

Sheffield City Council recently provided information and tips detailing how to stay warm and prepared in the cold weather, which we think may come in handy over the coming few days as we prepare for the snow to fall here in Sheffield.

For all information relating to roads this winter, you can view our dedicated page online here.

The Streets Ahead team closely monitor the weather forecast throughout the winter months so they can be ready if bad weather arrives. A fleet of 19 gritters are on standby, 24 hours, 7 days a week through until May.
For regular updates on gritters, please follow @sccstreetsahead on Twitter.

Sheffield schools will always do their utmost to stay open, however, changes to opening times may occur due to adverse weather.
If you are unsure if your school is opening, you should hear from your child’s school via their usual methods in the first instance. You can also check all school closures on www.sheffield.gov.uk/schoolclosures

Sign up for your schools winter alerts here.

Follow @sheffcouncil and #Sheffschools on Twitter for regular updates.

We aim to collect bins as normal. In bad weather, keep an eye on our alerts at www.veolia.co.uk/sheffield and @recycle4Shef.

If bad weather coincides with your usual bin collection day, please put your bin out as usual. We may not be able to collect it at the usual time but will aim to collect it as soon as possible.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
