When temperatures drop, life can sometimes become more challenging, particularly for older people and those living alone or without support. Thanks to long-time supporter Yakult, Royal Voluntary Service has produced a free guide and video with practical ways to keep ourselves and our homes safe, warm and well over the winter months. The guide draws on the charity’s long experience of supporting people in need across Great Britain, and offers practical tips, advice and information.

Tips and advice on how to stay safe – such as preparing for bad weather and ensuring your home is gas-safe.
As temperatures drop, staying warm is key to your health and happiness.
It’s important to stay as healthy as you can all year round, both physically and mentally – but extra vigilance during the winter is recommended. From eating well and staying active, to keeping in touch with friends and relatives and looking after your mental health.
