Warm Spaces Directory:
West Northamptonshire Council are working with local partners in the voluntary and community sector to create a network of Warm Spaces, a group of non-judgemental, safe, and welcoming places where people in West Northamptonshire can come together to stay warm, and perhaps enjoy a hot meal or a cup of tea and a biscuit. They have created a directory of all the places available to their residents across the public, private, health and voluntary sectors so that anyone who is cold knows where they can go to stay warm and enjoy a little company and some hot refreshments this winter. For further information please view here Looking for warm spaces | West Northamptonshire Council (westnorthants.gov.uk)
