Warm spaces in our catchment area
As we face extremely cold weather and the rising cost of living the local community has come together across our catchment area to offer Warm Spaces open to the whole community. According to Eastbourne Borough Council, Warm Spaces are safe, warm, and non-judgemental spaces where local people can sit and be warm, study or work, have a hot drink, be with company and access information or advice. Warm Spaces in the different areas of our catchment area are as follows:
