What is a Northumberland Warm Space?
Warm Spaces are places where people can come together in a warm, safe, welcoming place and maybe enjoy a hot drink, a sit down and have a chat with others.Voluntary groups, community organisations and others from our communities have come together to establish a network of warm spaces this winter which are free to visit and offer a warm welcome environment. Some places may offer a hot drink, activities and other things like free access computers and Wi-Fi. Residents can come and spend time quietly or meet other people in their community for a chat. Each warm space is different and may not be open every day. But we're working together with all our community partners to try and offer as many warm spaces as we can.
This interactive map on the 'keeping warm this winter' section of the website allows residents to search for their nearest warm space using their postcode. (Click the map to open the link).There is also a pdf list of spaces available.

I've heard of Warm Hubs, are these different to Warm Spaces?
Yes, they are different to Warm Spaces. Community Action Northumberland (CAN) has a long standing, award-winning 'Warm Hubs' project which has been highlighted as good practice by Ofgem and the Prince's Countryside Fund. They provide a network of warm, energy-efficient community venues acting as focal points for energy support and advice and a small network of volunteer Energy Agents. There are 24 Warm Hubs across Northumberland many of which already have a full programme - click here if you are interested in learning more about the Warm Hubs project.
