Local Warmer Public Community Spaces

The Council is in the process of identifying a number of warmer spaces (called Local Warmer Public Community Spaces) in community based locations across the borough. A grant will be made available to relevant organisations to help facilitate these ‘Warmer Spaces’. 

Residents will be able to attend the warm space free of charge and be able to have a warm drink whilst at the venue. The period the grant for the ‘Warmer Space’ is expected to cover will be from November 2022 to March 31st 2023. The grant is expected to support the venue in covering any additional heating costs as well as the provision of hot drinks such as tea or coffee as previously described. 

As the scheme comes to fruition, the council will provide venue information on its website, social media accounts and via other communication channels. The provision of warm spaces will be regularly reviewed during this period and additional venues may be added to the list of Local Warmer Public Community Spaces.

For further information, please visit the council's Local Warmer Public Community Spaces page.
