As the colder weather approaches we know families and residents will be concerned about the cost of fuel and food due to the increased rise in cost of living. Locally run warm hubs are one of the ways the District is looking to ensure everyone can be safe and warm this winter.
A ‘Warm Hub’ is a warm and safe place where local people can expect a friendly and inclusive welcome. People can come along on their own, or with a friend, and talk to others over a hot drink or maybe a hot meal. They can get practical tips and advice on saving energy costs and keeping safe and warm at home. Warm Hubs can run from publicly accessible community buildings, such as community centres, village halls, churches and community libraries.
To make sure this service meets the needs our residents, Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service Barnardos wanted to ask some key questions to visualise what this may look like.
