Warm spaces will once again be open to the public in Manchester this winter. The spaces are non-judgemental and safe for people looking to get out of the cold. 

Manchester City Council has announced that the city’s 22 libraries will open its doors to those who need the warm space this winter. There will also be a range of support at each available for use.

Some of the support includes free hot drinks, free wifi and information and advice. The council has stressed that all the spaces are free and people can stay inside as long as they need or want to. 

In addition to the libraries, there will be dozens of other community spaces opening up as warm banks this winter. This full list can be found via an interactive map on the Warm Welcome Spaces website. 

Councillor Joanna Midgley, Deputy Leader of Manchester City Council said: “Through our Warm Welcoming Spaces offer we are extending a helping hand to people who may be struggling this winter.

“Through this scheme we want to help tackle poverty and isolation and show that help is always available to people in Manchester who may be finding things difficult. In Manchester no one should be cold this winter and I am proud that once again our communities are pulling together to support our vulnerable residents.”
