  • Helping vulnerable people during severe weather

    Severe cold weather can be dangerous for vulnerable groups such as older people and those with serious illnesses. Preventative action taken at this stage can greatly benefit vulnerable groups during the cold weather. We can provide support, information and advice relating to vulnerable people during severe weather. We can all make a real difference by identifying family or neighbours who may need an extra helping hand during winter.
