Become a Winter Friend

Winter Friends is a new campaign in Leeds supporting people who are most at risk of poor health during winter to take positive actions to reduce their risk.

This will be achieved by encouraging people to sign up to be a winter friend – they will then be supported to do informal volunteering, share key messages and refer and signpost to relevant services.

Anyone can become a winter friend – once signed up, winter friends will receive a pack full of advice and inspiration.

People can find out more and sign up by visiting
