Look out for elderly and vulnerable people this winter

Cannock Chase Council is asking everyone to look out for the welfare of their elderly and vulnerable neighbours during the winter months.


With more sub-zero temperatures forecast again for next week (week beginning Monday 13th December), many vulnerable people in the Cannock Chase District will have difficulty getting out. Many employees from local authorities who deliver services in the community will also face difficulties.


Cllr Wendy Yates, Cannock Chase Council Healthier Communities Leader, said:

"During the awful weather conditions we’re currently experiencing I would ask people to keep an eye out for their neighbours, particularly if they are frail or housebound.


“If you have an elderly neighbour you know has difficulty getting out, it only takes a few minutes to pop in and see if they need anything. A small gesture like offering to pick up some shopping can make a huge difference.


“I’d also like to thank all staff who have been working in these conditions to ensure the health and well-being of the District’s elderly and vulnerable people.”
