Returning home

The Scottish Flood Forum has advice about what needs to happen before you can go back to your house.

Make sure you get your gas and electricity checked after a flood. Even if they seem to be working normally, they may be damaged and could be dangerous.

Physical and mental health

Flooding can affect your physical and mental health. There's information about coping with the aftermath of flooding on the Scottish Flood Forum's website.

The organisation also offers a 24 hour hotline: 01698 839021.

If you continue to feel bad speak to your GP about getting support.
