Our partnership with Power NI continues to have a significant impact on the lives of many older people in later life. As it now enters its tenth year, together we have launched a ‘Spread the Warmth’ 2018 winter campaign. 

Winter isn’t everyone’s favourite season and there’s no doubt that cold weather can be a worry for those of us in later life. As we get older, our bodies respond differently to the cold and this can leave us more vulnerable. Keeping warm both inside and outside your home can help reduce your risk of serious health problems that are more common in the colder months, such as chest infections, heart attacks and strokes.

We have produced a free Spread the Warmth guide which provides information on:

  • 5 Top Tips for staying healthy in winter
  • Myth-busting about winter and the cold
  • Power NI’s Customer Care Register
  • Energy Saving Tips
  • Free Home Energy Checks

Useful Resources

Age NI and Power NI have produced a number of resources about keeping warm, staying healthy and improving energy efficiency during the winter:
