Heatwave Alert

We have been experiencing high temperatures here in Solihull and across the country.

The heat can be dangerous for certain groups of people such as older people, those with existing medical conditions or very young people. We urge you to check on vulnerable friends and neighbours every day during the heatwave, particularly those who are on their own without support.

It is easy to become dehydrated in hot weather as we can soon lose more fluid than we take in, and even people at the peak of physical fitness can become ill if they are not careful.

Our advice for staying safe in the heatwave

  • Getting help with debt and money problems

    The lasting effects of the coronavirus pandemic and rising cost of living have led to more people struggling to make their money stretch to pay for normal daily living expenses.

    If you are in debt, the most important thing to do is to ask for help. No one chooses to be in debt but you can choose to get help and support and the earlier you do this the better.

    The Solihull Community Advice Hubs are here to help you to find solutions.

    Speak to our trained Information and Advice Caseworkers who give comprehensive information and advice on a range of issues affecting older people, their families and carers.

    This advice is free, accessible, confidential, clear, and most of all, independent.
