As part of the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s work to support citizens during the cost-of-living crisis, they have plans to develop a Warm Spaces scheme. The aim is to provide residents in the Vale with a network of community spaces that offer a warm and inviting place to come together this winter at no cost, and that offer a ‘Warm Welcome’ to different parts of our communities.

To start with they are looking to find out what is already available across the Vale and provide a directory for anyone to access in a similar way to the approach they adopted for Vale Heroes during the pandemic.

If you are part of a local organisation and either already provide such services, or think that you would be able to offer a Warm Welcome in the future, please complete this form by the 26th October if possible.

This will enable the Vale of Glamorgan Council to then start publishing information and consider funding requests as soon as possible. They will also welcome details of projects and new opportunities as they develop as this work is likely to keep evolving.
