The cost of living crisis continues to put the squeeze on household budgets as everyday food prices continue to rise, inflation remains in the double digits and energy bills show no signs of coming down before summer.

While we welcome the warmer days of late winter and longer daylight hours, many households are still struggling to heat their homes.

According to the End Fuel Poverty Coalition, 16.4 million people will be in fuel poverty this winter. However, many people in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland may not be aware of a new interactive map - signposted on the GOV.UK Cost of Living microsite - which has details of 4,261 ‘Warm Welcome Spaces’ which have opened their doors to the public.

The network of community organisations, churches, libraries, businesses and other faith groups across the UK have opened their doors to provide heat, Wi-Fi, hot drinks and company to anyone in the area who needs it.
