Service user produced advice leaflets re climate change and extreme weather
Developed by Equinox service users with guidance from Equinox medical staff, the leaflets provide advice and guidance for dealing with extreme hot and cold weather.
The leaflets offer tailored information for people who use drugs, alcohol and experience mental ill health - so they can inform themselves about the essentials of self-care during extreme weather conditions.
This Equinox climate change project was funded by Defra. Research and development took place over 6 months in late 2012 and early 2013.
