We find out more about the warm hubs around the city-region and what the council is doing to help residents during the cost-of-living crisis.

Manchester City Council is helping residents stay warm this Winter with 22 warm hubs around the city. The council is providing support to people in Manchester struggling to heat their homes due to the cost-of-living crisis as temperatures drop and utility bills prices rise.

The warm hubs are located in libraries around the region, including Central Library in the city centre. These hubs provide a place for warmth and hot drinks as well as a space to get some advice and support if needed. Alongside the hubs, the council is providing a range of services to help people who are struggling to cope with the rising costs.

We spoke to Deputy Council Leader Councillor Joanna Midgley to find out more about how the council plans to aid local people.
