The Warm Welcome Space campaign has a large number of warm spaces across the country and some here in the Square Mile that you can visit. You will be welcomed with a smile, offered a hot drink and will be able to find information about other support options available.

Find a Warm Space

A warm welcome from our lending libraries

Our libraries are listed on the Warm Welcome Space map. They have always offered a warm space where you can come to relax, read a book and access computers, scanners, printers and get help with form filling and basic IT.

Pop into one of our lending libraries. Find them on the libraries web pages.

Advice on staying warm and well this winter

There are many factors that may affect our health during cold weather and throughout the winter. Please visit our Staying warm and well during the colder months webpage to find information about the various things that you can do to protect yourself, and the support options available to you.

Host a Warm Space

If you run or work for a charity or voluntary organisation, you may be able to apply for up to £2000 to host a 'Warm Space' this winter.

'Warm Spaces' provide a place for everyone to come for warmth, activities and community in a friendly, non-judgemental way that welcomes all.

The fund is awarded through the Stronger Communities Fund (as part of the charity arm of the City Corporation).

Funding is available to new organisations or those that already hold a 'Stronger Communities' grant. This funding is in addition to the existing small grants programme. To make an application visit the Stronger Communities web page.

Organisations with additional questions can email the Grants Team.
