Winter Warm Packages

Published on 17 February 2020 02:10 PM

Age UK Leeds have secured funding from NHS England to enable us to set up a project to provide Winter Warm Packages to support vulnerable older people in Leeds.

Depending on the needs of the individual a Winter Warm Package could include:

  • Warm Food
  • Warm Clothing
  • Blankets and Bedding
  • Small Household Goods
  • Prescription Collection
  • Food Shopping
  • General Welfare Checks

The packages are for people most at risk of admission to hospital and who need extra support when they are discharged, such as older people living alone.

We have until the end of March 2020 to use this funding. So do bear this in mind, particularly now the weather has taken a turn for the worse.

If you identify a client who is at risk, and we could help by providing items and/ or support time, to keep them warmer or contribute to preventing a hospital admission, please contact us for a referral form.

Give us a call on 0113 389 3000 to find out more.
