With more and more people now turning to community ‘warm spaces’ due to rising energy costs, or to local food banks as the price of food increases, we wanted to share with you the support on offer for local people here in Plymouth.
Plymouth City Council has put together a map of warm spaces that are available to access across the city, so if you’re looking for a warm, safe space to spend time in as the weather gets colder, many of the organisations, charities and libraries in Plymouth will be happy to welcome you in.
All of the spaces will have a place to sit comfortably. Many of them also offer free Wi-Fi, including Plymouth's libraries.
Transforming Plymouth Together has also provided details of local warm spaces and additional support.
If you need support from a foodbank, The Plymouth Food Aid Network has a useful, regularly-updated map of local foodbanks. Alternatively, the Trussell Trust’s ‘Find a Food Bank’ tool is another option for searching.
Do share this information widely to support others to stay safe, well and warm this winter.
