Helping vulnerable people


Severe winter weather can strike quickly leaving some people vulnerable.  A little planning now can help keep people warm and safe this winter.  The Scottish Government's winter weather website has lots of useful information to help you prepare for severe weather with vulnerable people in mind.

The winter months can be a difficult time but there are a number of services and sources of information that can make life a little bit easier.

Here's a few things that you could do to help:

  • Lend a hand with grocery shopping
  • Or, clear away ice or snow
  • Have the phone numbers handy of anyone you think might appreciate your help

Doing a few small things now, could save a lot of trouble later. Find out more at

Services during severe weather

Our priority is to continue to run our Health & Social Care services as usual during severe weather.  However, sometimes because of difficulties and risk associated with travel or damage to offices caused by severe weather, our teams have the option to work out of different offices or from home. In cases of severe weather disruption a priority service will be put into action where those most at risk of harm or who pose a risk to others will be seen first.  Below are some frequently asked questions that may help you.
