Spread the Warmth

Canal in Winter

 

Each winter more lives are lost from people living in cold homes than those people who die through road accidents! Last winter The Gazette reported  80 winter deaths of  older people  in the borough of Dacorum. 

Age UK Dacorum’s campaign is to reduce the number of people living in Dacorum who may be at risk by living in cold homes. Exposure to the cold can have a devastating impact on the health of older people who are particularly vulnerable to the impact of low temperatures. As people get older it takes longer to warm up. The cold thickens blood and increases blood pressure. Each winter sees massive increases in the incidence of heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia and depression in older people.

  • Cold Homes Week (Feb 1st - 5th)

    Cold Homes Week (1-5 February 2016) is a week of action on fuel poverty and excess winter deaths.

    Each winter one older person dies every seven minutes from the cold weather. Many of these deaths could be prevented if everyone lived in a warm home.

    That’s why Age UK is calling on the Government to reform its energy efficiency programmes to enable all older people to live in a warm home. We believe that no older person should have to worry about the cold and everyone should be able to keep warm and well in winter.

    Take part in our candlelight vigil for Cold Homes Week

    Our campaign supporters are vital in helping us to bring about change, which is why we need your help with our campaign for warm homes.

  • Warm Park Homes Campaign

    Living in a park home – a static mobile home – is a popular lifestyle choice for many older people. Park homes are less energy efficient and more expensive to heat than other types of properties. Many park home residents are on fixed incomes and their only hope of support with heating their home is accessing one of the Government’s energy efficiency schemes. We have 5 caravan parks in Dacorum.  

    Age UK is calling on the Government to roll out a specific energy efficiency scheme for people living in park homes.
