Join the Winter Friends Campaign

Support the NHS Choices Winter Friends campaign and sign the pledge to look in on an older friend or neighbour this winter.

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

But it doesn't have to be this way.

By signing the pledge and looking in on someone this winter, you can help reduce the number of unnecessary deaths and make winter a better time for everyone.

Join and together we'll all do our bit this winter.

Signing the pledge will also ensure you get cold weather alerts and other email tips to help friends and neighbours as the temperatures drop.
