Staying safe in hot weather

Enjoying the warmer weather can be wonderful, but heat can make people very unwell, and can even be deadly. Extreme heat can effect younger and older people, pregnant women, and those with chronic health conditions the most.

But there’s a lot we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the heat. These two guides can help understand how to stay safe, with tips including when to stay out of the sun, drinking lots of fluids and keeping the home cool.

The first page of the guide is designed for VCSE organisations to help understand and prepare for the challenges that heatwaves may pose.
