Following the launch of 'Stay Warm and Healthy in Derby', which aims to help people struggling to stay warm, safe and healthy in their homes, the council has said that too many people are experiencing poor health because they are living in a cold home.
It is excellent that we are able to offer this programme over the coming winter months. Far too many people experience poor health by living in a cold home and this will help to make sure that Derby residents can keep warm and healthy this winter.
The partnership has been formed by many agencies including Derby City Council, AgeUK Derby and Derbyshire, Derby City Primary Care Trust and the Department of Health.
