About Warm Spaces

With the cost of living crisis, some people are facing tough decisions, such as eating or heating their homes. A Warm Space is a place where people can go to avoid social isolation, help reduce their anxiety about the cost of living, take part in activities and/or receive practical support and advice.

Warm Spaces can provide people with a free hot drink and a biscuit, or even a meal, they should be a welcoming and comfortable environment where people feel at ease and can talk to others.

Below are some helpful resources, including how to add your Warm Space to our directory.
