Winter Friends

Every year, hundreds of thousands of older people spend much of the winter alone and lonely.

Last winter, about 31,000 people in England died as a result of cold weather. Most of these people were over 75 and many of these deaths could have been avoided.

Our Winter Friends campaign aims to get 100,000 people to sign a pledge to "take time out this winter to look in on an elderly friend or neighbour to make sure they are warm and coping well"
