Our Winter Wellbeing scheme offers lots of practical help, support, information and advice to keep everyone, but especially older and vulnerable people protected over the cold winter months.

As the weather gets colder and nights get darker it is vital that older or vulnerable people in particular take steps to keep safe, warm, healthy and well at home. This isn’t always easy in cold, snowy or icy weather but lots of help is available from a range of schemes and services, all part of the council's Winter Wellbeing initiative.

Find more information on these services below.

We have also produced a Winter Wellbeing booklet that can be downloaded (below).

You can find Winter Wellbeing information flyers in Urdu, Punjabi, Polish, Hindi and Romani, available to download below. 

Key support services offering specialist help over the winter months:

In recognition of the challenges of this winter, Dudley Council for Voluntary Service (DCVS) are working in partnership with venues across the borough to offer people warm places to go. With support from the council, they have launched Warm Welcomes. This brings together a network of 50 warm spaces where you can come this winter to keep down energy costs at home.
