Warm Spaces open across Stevenage
Stevenage's residents will have access to free Warm Spaces across the town this winter.
Stevenage Borough Council has worked with local organisations to develop a Warm Spaces Network. The Warm Spaces will be free for residents to access from Monday 28 November 2022.
A Warm Space will be available every day of the week, at locations including: Daneshill House, Stevenage Museum, Stevenage Library, Bedwell Community Centre, St Nicholas Community Centre, churches, and the Indoor Market.
At most venues, food and drink will be provided, and residents will also be able to bring their own food and drink to any Warm Space. Staff will also be on hand to signpost anyone needing extra support with benefits, their health, and fuel and other costs.
Baroness Taylor of Stevenage said:
“We know that this winter will be difficult for many with the rise in energy bills and cost of living crisis, and some residents will be faced with tough decisions about whether they can afford to heat their homes.
“The Warm Spaces are free for anyone to use and will provide a welcoming place for people to stay warm, enjoy a hot drink and food, and socialise with others if they wish.
“We hope to add more Warm Spaces over the winter as the network grows, so please keep checking our website to find out the latest spaces available.”
