24,000 deaths were linked to cold weather last winter.
According to the Office for National Statistics almost 20,000 were over the age of 75.
But energy prices are going up above the rate of inflation and will surely fuel more deaths in your area. So as the temperature is now due to drop to danger point surely the time to debate has passed. So please share urgently what you are you actioning or others are in your neighbourhood to protect the most vulnerable.
Please share ideas and experience quickly and save lives.
