Find your nearest “Warm Spot”
There are now Warm Spot venues all the way from Barrow to Alston operating from village halls, community centres, churches, libraries, pubs, and sports centres, some open every day and some just a few hours a week. Everyone is welcome and you will not need to give any explanation of why you are there.
To find the Warm Spot nearest you, visit our new webpage – westmorlandandfurness.gov.
As a minimum, a Warm Spot will offer a warm space, a warm welcome, someone on hand to talk to if you wish, and, in most cases, a hot drink (free or at cost). But many are offering a much wider range of facilities, activities, and support.
Cumbria’s Holiday Activity and Food Programme – South Lakeland.
