We’re busy gearing up to extend a warm welcome to more local people.  This is because we have secured support to create a ‘heat hub’; a warm, safe haven for members of our community who are unable to heat their homes this winter as the cost of living crisis bites.

The Centre has always been known locally as a place of warm welcome, but timely funding from Morgan Stanley International Foundation means more people can now come and spend time at the Centre over the winter months. Located in the church hall and other public areas,  the hub will be available during Centre opening hours plus certain evenings and weekends until May 2023.  We will be reaching out to people identified through our other programmes as being the most in need of a space to be and who are struggling to heat their homes.

Whilst we’re sad that this has become necessary, we are very pleased to be able to extend our services to offer this vital resource to people in our neighbourhood.  The heat hub will enable people to keep warm, have a chat and a cuppa, make new friends and will act as a gateway to access other Centre services such social welfare and energy advice, Monday’s Bow Foodbank (8.30-12.30) and groups and activities happening daily.
