Warm Spaces in Hertsmere

Last Modified December 09, 2022
 

Hertsmere Borough Council is committed to supporting our residents over the winter months and is working with our community and voluntary sector to provide warm spaces for residents. Hertsmere’s warm spaces will provide a free safe, welcoming place for residents to keep warm and take part in social activities.

Hertfordshire County Council have created a Warm Spaces Directory, where residents can find local warm spaces, register to become a warm space,and apply for funding through their grant scheme, Hertfordshire Community Foundation.

Visit Communities 1st Warm Spaces Directory here.

For more information on how we can support you financially, visit our financial support page.

Hertsmere Borough Council has a localised offer across all areas of Hertsmere. See further below for information on where and when the warm spaces are taking place.

Warm Spaces - Our Pledge

  • You'll get a warm welcome as well as Warm Space.
  • Every time you come to a Warm Space you'll be given a warm welcome from the staff and volunteers there.
  • Everyone is treated equally, with dignity and respect.
  • Everyone has a right to be warm, so everyone in a Warm Space treats people, and is treated by people, with dignity and respect.
  • Your Warm Space will be a safe space.
  • Your Warm Space will stick to the safeguarding policies that it always uses, and it will stick to food hygiene rules too!
  • We'll not tell anyone about you using a Warm Space.
  • If you want to share the reasons you use a Warm Space, someone will listen, but they won't tell anyone else unless you give them permission, or they must because of their safeguarding policies. If you want to ask for extra support – with benefits, health, fuel and other costs or anything else, the staff will put you in touch with the right people, with your consent.
  • It doesn't matter why you use a Warm Space.
  • Every Warm Space is a non-judgemental space; whatever the reason you have for coming in, you'll be treated the same and never judged.
  • Options of what to do in your Warm Space.
  • Every Warm Space will have the option to participate in some activity, from more casual “coffee” hours to a service’s usual activities. If you don’t fancy this, you can always find a seat and bring something with you to do.
  • Choose your food and drink for your Warm Space.

 

Please be advised some Warm Spaces may have restrictions for food but our Warm Spaces will endeavour to provide food and drink, or allow you to bring your own where suitable. Please find more information within the description of the service on the Warm Spaces directory.
