Warm places

Where can I find a warm place?

Public buildings and spaces across the borough are being converted into ‘warm spaces’ this winter to help those struggling to heat their homes as the cost-of-living crisis bites.

The Borough Council has created a list of all the places available to its residents across the public, private and voluntary sectors. These venues are open to all.

It aims to ensure anyone who is cold knows where they can go to get warm, stay warm and enjoy a little company and some hot refreshments.

This list is being regularly updated.

If you would like your venue added to this list, please complete our warm places contact form
