It is important during bad weather to ensure that vulnerable members of your community are keeping well and warm, especially during periods of low temperatures.

  • Check on neighbours and relatives who are elderly or unwell and see if they need anything. This can be particularly important if the individual is unable to leave their home.
  • Keep up to date with local events and winter heath guidance from your local authorities and voluntary sector bodies.
