Warmer homes leaflet frontcover image

Lambeth Council's benefits advisory service and NHS Lambeth have produced a new booklet offering advice on how to stay warm in winter and save money. It is aimed at everyone but especially those who are on lower incomes such as older people who may worry about the costs of heating their homes.

The booklet (left) is being issued as part of the Warm and Well in Winter partnership project between the London Borough of Lambeth, NHS Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group and Age UK Lambeth. The project aims to reduce winter mortality by raising awareness throughout the whole community; however our target groups are older people and those with long term medical conditions. Every winter, as many as 25,000 older people die needlessly because of the cold.

The booklet is available to download on the Lambeth website or paper copies can be picked up from the following locations in the borough
