Keeping warm in your local community this winter

25 November 2022

With energy bills rising over the past few months, we know that it may not always be possible to limit energy usage to offset rising costs. As a step towards reducing the challenges that people are facing this winter, several local authorities have created a network of Warm Welcome spaces in their communities which guarantee a free welcoming place where you can go to keep warm and engage with others in your community. We contacted each of the local authorities in the 36 communities we work in to find out what warm spaces they offer. We’ve used this information to create a directory of warm spaces. You can find out what places are available in your area below:
