What are Warm Welcome venues?
These venues are warm and welcoming places for residents who need a place with free entry to meet up with friends, take part in activities and just be, without switching on the heating at home.
It does not matter why you need to visit and no record will be taken. Everyone is welcome to these safe spaces where you will be treated with dignity and respect.
Some venues will provide activities, reading materials and refreshments, including hot drinks.
The list and map will be updated as venues are added and offers upgraded.
