How you can help in cold weather

Check on elderly and vulnerable neighbours

Please check on your elderly and vulnerable neighbours to see if they need help with getting food, medicine or care during cold weather. If you know people who are having problems getting services they need, contact our adult social care helpline 01273 295555. 

Find out about protecting the elderly this winter on the Met Office website.

Four wheel drive vehicle volunteers

Each winter we ask for owners of 4x4 vehicles to sign up with us to volunteer. Drivers can help us provide support services during severe weather. To volunteer email

Rough sleepers

We work with homelessness agencies to provide emergency shelter for rough sleepers in extremely cold weather. 

If you are concerned about a rough sleeper at any time, please use Streetlink to get in touch with our outreach team. You can also call on 0300 500 0914. There's more information on our web page how to help people living rough on the street
