Sefton Warm Spaces

Warm Spaces are places where people can gather for free in a safe, warm place to connect with others and maybe enjoy a hot drink and food.

Working alongside voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and in partnership with Sefton Council we have established a network of Warm Spaces across Sefton this winter. These include community centres, community hubs and other places offering a warm welcome and free to use for anyone feeling lonely or struggling with the cost of living.

All ‘Warm Spaces’ will be heated, safe and friendly places where you can comfortably spend time reading, studying or chatting with others. Our ‘Enhanced hub’ Warm Spaces, will also offer hot drinks and food, activities, and other services such as free Wi-Fi.

You can find more advice and information on Cost of Living support in available in the borough on the Sefton Council website here: www.sefton.gov.uk/costofliving.
