Warm Hubs - Sheffield
Over the colder winter months, we understand that many people face fuel poverty and struggle to afford heating costs. This is why we have funded a number of Warm hubs that can support people during the cost-of-living crisis.
Warm hubs provide a safe place which is warm, friendly and welcoming where attendees can partake in social activities surrounded by the company of others whilst receiving support during difficult times. They offer a lifeline for people in social isolation and those suffering with fuel poverty.
Places for People have funded warm hubs across three Places Leisure centres in Sheffield, where the pubic can enjoy a warm and welcoming space.
The centres will be open from December until March, giving locals a chance to meet new people, play board games, and join in other activities. They will also offer free blankets and refreshments, with visitors to Wisewood and Graves given free hot food and drinks at selected sessions, while visitors to Thorncliffe will receive hot drinks and snacks.
Places Leisure Warm Hub opening times vary; Wisewood is open to all from 1-3pm on Mondays and 9.30-11.30am on Fridays. Graves will be open from 1-3pm every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, while Thorncliffe opens 1-3pm on Wednesdays and 9.30-11.30am on Thursdays. The initiative will run through to March 2023.
