Warm Rooms

What is a 'warm room'?

Public spaces such as community centres, churches, and libraries are being used as 'warm banks' to provide a safe place for people struggling to heat their homes this winter. Some centres also offer hot food and drinks.

Please note availability and times shown may change over the Christmas holiday period. Please check with the venue for key holiday date opening arrangements.
