Last winter about 31,000 people in England died as a result of cold weather. Most of the people who died were over 75 and many of these deaths could have been avoided.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
By signing our pledge and looking in on someone this winter, you can help reduce the number of unnecessary deaths and make winter a better time for everyone.
Join us and together we’ll all do our bit this winter.
Signing the pledge will also ensure you get cold weather alerts and other email tips to help friends and neighbours as the temperatures drop.
