Warm spaces will again be available for Fylde residents over the winter period, and financial support is available for eligible organisations who want to offer out a space.
Voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise sector organisations, including parish and town councils, can apply for up to £500 from Lancashire County Council’s Warm Spaces scheme to support the creation and improvement of warm and welcoming spaces.
A regularly reviewed list of warm spaces in Fylde can be found on the Fylde Council website. If you have somewhere you would like to put forward as a warm space, please email email@example.com
Cllr Chris Dixon, Fylde Council’s Lead Member for Social Wellbeing, said: “Nobody should be left in the cold this winter. If you need somewhere welcoming to stay warm while keeping your household bills down, we can help you find a place. If you’re an organisation able to provide that space for others, please let us know, and don’t forget you may be eligible for a grant. With the cost of living and energy prices still high, it’s vital that we continue to help each other.”
Lancashire County Council have also relaunched the warm spaces scheme in libraries across the county, offering residents a warm space to sit and socialise. You can search the full LCC warm spaces directory through the Lancashire County Council website.
For more information on the LCC Warm Spaces grant scheme, including eligibility and the application process, visit the Lancashire County Council website. The grant scheme will be open from Wednesday 8 November until 23:59 on Sunday 3 December.
