Warm Spaces

With the cost of living rising, we know some people are struggling with the cost of heating their homes. Warm Spaces is an initiative to provide warm and welcoming places where people can go and enjoy a chat and see a friendly face.

Find out about Warm Spaces across the county including those offered by Gloucestershire Libraries:
