Support for you this winter

A big shout out to our gritting teams who have been out keeping our roads safe as temperatures plummeted this week.

Please take care when travelling either by car or foot as there is a risk of ice in certain places.

Your Life Doncaster has everything you need to know to keep well this winter:



There is lots of support available for you over the cold months, from Welcoming Spaces to health and care services.

Please also consider how you can choose kindness this winter by keeping those vulnerable loved ones, friends and neighbours in mind and check in with them where we can.

Alternative New Years Resolutions

As we move through January there can be a pressure to see results from your resolutions.

Why not, instead measure how your actions have made you feel?

Resolutions can help you to meet new people, have time to yourself and improve your mental health!
