Winter resilience groups

Each year we encourage Community Councils and volunteer groups to participate in our winter resilience programme.

Our winter resilience groups voluntarily carry out footway gritting within their local communities, helping vulnerable neighbours access their homes and local shops.

Winter resilience groups are issued with a grit bin, shovels, lightweight hand spreader, buckets, gloves, long sleeved high visibility vests and safety glasses.

At present we support 130 winter resilience groups, with the numbers rising each year!

If you are part of a Community Council or volunteer group and are interested in participating please contact us for more info.
