More than 1,600 organisations have signed up to become a Warm Welcome Space this winter – but what are they and how can they help people living in Alfreton?
The Warm Welcome Space campaign was set up by a partnership of charities in response to this winter’s cost-of-living crisis.
The aim is to create a network of organisations who are willing to open their doors to those in need and provide a warm and welcome space for anyone struggling to heat their homes this winter.
There is no requirement for how long or often an organisation must be open for. You just have to be willing to open up your space to those who need it.
Everyone who signs up will have their location listed on an interactive map.
At present – according to the map – there are no organisations in Alfreton registered with the campaign.
The closest locations are both in South Normanton – South Normanton Community Church, on the High Street, and The Junction 28 Church, on The Common.
It is free for organisations to sign up. You can find out more information about how to register here.
If you do sign up – or are already offering something similar in Alfreton – please let us know and we’ll list your details on our website.
