25th April 2023: Please note that some councils have been removing their warm spaces directories or removing individual warm spaces because they are no longer available due to reduced need. With the change in temperature, this tool will now only update the data on Sunday evenings rather than every day.
During the winter of 2022-3, the cost-of-living crisis in the UK means more-and-more people will struggle to stay warm. Many different groups - from voluntary groups to local councils - have started collating different directories of warm spaces. This duplicates work and means each directory only contains a subset of all warm spaces. So we have developed this as a lower bandwidth tool that searches through multiple warm spaces directories.
