OLDER and disabled people in Newtownabbey are being urged to look out for Switchover Help Scheme information packs which will be landing on their doorsteps this week.

The Switchover Help Scheme is writing directly to people that are eligible for help and they will receive their first letter and information pack through the post any day now.

The pack, which is also available in a range of alternative formats, explains all the options available to eligible people and contains important information on how they can get help to convert one TV to digital in time for switchover which begins on October 10.

Most will have to pay £40 towards the help while certain people will be able to apply for free assistance.

All Switchover installers are vetted, carry identification and will never call without having made an appointment. For information go to
