Selby Warm Welcome has sprung from an idea to build an online directory of warm spaces. These are spaces to find warmth, community & help.

With the rise in the cost of living, we understand that this winter will be challenging. That’s why we’re creating a directory where you can find warm spaces and community. 

We are currently working with several organisations and community groups to build a directory of warm spaces. Please check back to see the list grow.

Every space can offer something different. Some may offer free hot drinks; pay-it-forward schemes, advice, somewhere to charge your phone or maybe just somewhere to be comfortable & warm with no judgement.

Check out the notes attached to each space on the list to find out what they have on offer and when they are open.

If you feel you have a venue (community room, cafe) that you could offer for a couple of hours please get in touch for further information.

You may be able to offer a few hours to spare as a volunteer to staff a venue, if so, please get in touch and we can put you in touch with some of the community groups we are working with.
