The need for
Warm Welcome Spaces
By working together, Warm Welcome will ensure everyone has somewhere warm and friendly to go, so no one is ever left to get through winter alone.
The dark evenings and cold winter months are challenging for everyone, especially people who feel lonely and isolated, and anyone who can’t afford to heat their home or feed themselves.
The rising cost-of-living means that too many vulnerable people are falling into debt and struggling to keep warm or buy the food or essentials they need. Over 14.4 million people live in poverty in the UK.
The top reasons visitors had for coming to a Warm Welcome space were its warmth, its safety, to meet new and old friends, and because it was free.
Over 7 million people experience chronic loneliness. We all lived through the pandemic and experienced the impact of social isolation. Feeling isolated and alone can affect your physical and mental health.
Over half of visitors would have been at home with the heating off if they had not been at a Warm Welcome Space.
