      Some people are at greater risk in the heat:

      • older people
      • babies and young children
      • people with long-term physical or mental health conditions and taking certain medications.

      If you know someone who’s at risk during a heatwave, check that they can get help if they need it. Older friends and neighbours who live alone will appreciate a quick visit every day to make sure that they’re well.
