Would you need extra support during a flood?

As part of your flood planning we recommend you think about who you can ask for assistance before, during and after a flood. You could contact your local council, as many of them keep lists of vulnerable people who might need extra support in a flood or emergency situation. If the Floodline Warnings Direct service is available in your area, we can also deliver flood warnings for your property to a relative or friend, so that they are aware when you may need help. You can set this up by phoning Floodline on 0345 9881188 or 0845 988 1188.
