Let's be there for one another this winter.
With the shorter days and cold nights, winter can be a difficult time of year for many. Lots of people, especially those who are older, can easily become isolated when the weather is bad and people living by themselves can struggle with loneliness during the festive period.
It’s now more important than ever that we reach out to the people around us.
By doing your bit to support people in your neighbourhood, you’ll help to rekindle neighbourly spirit, reduce social isolation and even prevent illnesses such as dementia, heart disease and depression.
