The first responsibility for protecting property lies with the property owner. You can get sandbags from local builders merchants and check sources of advice below if you think you may be at risk of flooding.
If a flood happens, we will try to help those most at risk, including vulnerable members of the community. Contact us if you are aware that a frail or vulnerable person is affected. We will also try to make filled sandbags available to those most vulnerable, where resources allow.
