Warm Spaces This Winter
West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) have a network of warm spaces available for residents during the winter period.
The rising cost-of-living is resulting in unprecedented pressures on people in financial hardship, and this winter, despite the support given by the government, many people will struggle to be able to afford to heat their home. There is concern that combined with the threat of loneliness, the physical and mental health of residents may suffer.
WNC has worked with partners to establish a network of over 70 Warm Spaces this winter. Warm Spaces are places where people can gather for free in a warm, safe, welcoming place to come together to stay cosy, and perhaps enjoy a hot meal or a cup of tea and a biscuit.
The centres are open to everyone and include libraries, community centres, community hubs and other places offering a warm welcome and free to use for anyone struggling to heat their home. Some venues will also offer hot drinks, activities, and other services such as free Wi-Fi.
The Council has created a map of venues across the region, including several spaces in Daventry. Click here for information on Warm Space locations in Daventry
Information on financial support and services for those feeling low or struggling with their mental health are also available for residents on our Cost of Living page.
