Age UK & John Lewis

We're proud to launch our new appeal with John Lewis to help some of the million older people who go a month without speaking to anyone.

Campaign for warm homes

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.

Last winter around 80 older people died from the cold weather in the borough of Dacorum.

Help us tackle the issue of cold homes and excess winter deaths in Dacorum.

Keep Warm this Winter

Canal in Winter


Each winter, one older person dies every 7 minutes from the cold. 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 this year 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.
