Warm spaces

Welcome and Warm Spaces

"Welcome and Warm" spaces are initiatives set up to create places within the local community where people can come together, socialise, stay warm and in some cases have hot refreshments.

Alongside council venues, many of our valued Community Partners are also offering welcome and warm spaces as well as other services and support in local venues across the borough. 

All venues in the table below are free to attend unless otherwise stated. Some may ask for a small voluntary donations.
