Vulnerable neighbours and Relatives

Check on older neighbours and relatives, and those with heart or breathing (respiratory) problems, to make sure they:

  • are safe and well
  • are warm enough, especially at night
  • have stocks of food and medicines so they do not need to go out during very cold weather

If you're worried about a relative or elderly neighbour, contact the Let's Talk Team on 0191 424 6000, Age Concern Tyneside South on 0191 456 6903 or the Age UK helpline on 0800 678 1602 (8am to 7pm every day).

If you're concerned the person may have hypothermia, contact NHS 111.

For more information on staying well in winter visit the NHS website.
