Community Warm Welcome Spaces - staying warm
What is a Warm Welcome Space?
Community Warm Welcome Spaces will be opening up again across Adur and Worthing - meaning residents will have somewhere to keep warm for free this winter.
Warm Welcome Spaces will offer people who are worried about the rising cost of energy bills not only the chance to keep warm, but also aim to reduce social isolation with group activities or a welcome cup of tea.
Last year, a number of Warm Spaces opened their doors to visitors thanks to funding from Adur & Worthing Councils and this funding has been made available again this year and the grants applications are open now until 10th November 2023.
When will they be open?
A handy map of all the Warm Welcome Space venues across Adur and Worthing will be available to view below. It will include the times they are open (if you click on a location on the map). Residents will easily be able to find one close to where they live. The map will also include the locations of Warm Welcome Spaces run by West Sussex County Council and those set up without funding from the Councils.
Who can go, and can you just turn up or do you need to book a space?
Anyone can attend a Warm Welcome Space, just look on the map, see what location suits you.
There's no need to book a space, just turn up.
We look forward to seeing you at a Warm Welcome Space soon.
