How to find us

Looking after vulnerable neighbours, family and friends during severe weather

It’s important for local communities to look out for one another during periods of severe weather, especially those who are most vulnerable.

You can do this by considering who around you may be at risk from severe weather – e.g. an elderly or disabled neighbour – and making arrangements with them to help out with grocery shopping or other important tasks.

Communities can also prepare for severe weather by deciding if any tasks can be done together rather than individually to minimise the effects of severe weather both at home and at work – for example, by clearing snow from entrances or parking spaces.

Remember - only accept help from people you know or who are genuine members of a known voluntary organisation.

If you don't know them, ask for identification and check before letting them in – genuine callers won’t mind waiting while you do this, and you can find out more about reducing the risk of bogus callers here.

There may also be opportunities to take part in local volunteering schemes during periods of severe weather – for more information on this, contact Volunteering Wales.
