Keep Warm Keep Well campaign26th October 2007
The Department of Health has published a map showing where the coldest homes are in England.
It is to mark the launch of the Keep Warm Keep Well campaign advising the elderly, poor and disabled on how to stay warm and healthy during the winter months. Liverpool was identified as the coldest place where 28.8% of people aged 65 or over were without central heating. The DoH warns that living in a cold home can have an affect on people’s health and is linked to heart and respiratory problems, serious illness, discomfort and depression.
