What are Warm Welcome venues?
These venues are welcoming places for residents, that are free to enter, where you can meet up with friends and neighbours, take part in activities and just relax. In winter they also provide warm spaces that people can enjoy without switching on the heating at home.
Everyone is welcome to these safe spaces - and all visitors are treated with dignity and respect. You don't have to pre-book and no record will be taken of your visit - just pop in!
Some venues provide activities, reading materials and refreshments, including hot drinks at no charge.
So whether you're visiting to meet friends and neighbours and have a chat, to find somewhere warm to relax, or simply to get out of the house for a change of scenery - why not visit your Warm Welcome venue soon?
