NeighboursLots of us are already doing a great job of looking out for each other, but there is still more we can do to make our local areas healthier and happier for everyone. ‘Looking Out for Neighbours’ is a community campaign running across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to help local people feel better in the place they live and have the peace of mind good neighbours bring.

Find out how some of Britain’s favourite and best known TV stars and celebrities have backed this year’s NHS winter campaign. Age UK is also running  the ‘No one should have no one at Christmas’ campaign, which highlights that over a million older people say they haven’t spoken to a friend, neighbour or family member for over a month.
