WDH are working with partners to provide our Independent Living Scheme residents with health and wellbeing advice along with information on how to stay safe and warm this winter.
The first Winter Warmer event was at Hatfeild Court Independent Living Scheme in Wakefield, with WDH, Age UK, Dementia Friends and The South West Yorkshire Foundation Trust (SWYFT) offering residents advice about shopping and healthy eating, and information on how to switch their energy supplier, along with discussing issues such as dementia.
Chris Croxall, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “We have organised Keeping Warm in Winter events in Wakefield over the past few years, and think they are a great way for us and partners to get vital health and wellbeing information to vulnerable residents to prepare them for the winter months.”
The Winter Warmer sessions continue throughout November at our Independent Living Schemes, please see the events calendar on our website www.wdh.co.uk for more details about these events.
Please note that there will be a Winter Warmer event at St Luke’s Church Hall on Thursday 12 November at 2 pm, which is open to the general public as well as Independent Living Scheme residents.
