Warm Spaces

Warm Spaces are heated, safe and friendly places and are free to use for anyone struggling to heat their home.

Alongside voluntary, community and local organisations, we have set up a network of Warm Spaces across the borough for the 2022 to 2023 winter.

These include libraries, leisure centres, community centres and community hubs.

Some venues also offer hot drinks, activities, and other services such as free Wi-Fi.

We have made every attempt to make sure this list of Warm Spaces is up to date but please do check with each venue to make sure they are open.
