Oxford City Council has come forward with details on where free public water points can be found, and how the SWEP alert system will work for hot weather in the city; Homeless Link have updated their own SWEP guidance; and central government have issued their own advice.

OHM have pulled this together in one place. Learn more about dealing with any very hot weather this summer, or browse our other resources under I need help.
