The cost of living crisis in the UK is resulting in unprecedented pressures on people already struggling, and this winter thousands of people in Richmond will be forced to make tough decisions.

What we are doing to help

We want to do as much as possible to help our residents. Therefore, we are working with our local partners to provide access to a network of Warm Spaces, a group of places where Richmond residents can come together to stay warm.

Some venues will also offer hot drinks, activities and access to other services.


We have created a directory to publicise all the places available to our residents across all sectors, so that anyone who is in need knows where they can go to stay warm, enjoy a little company and some hot refreshments. It will also enable us to map Warm Spaces across the borough to ensure there is a good spread and identify any gaps.

Whilst all information on this site is provided in good faith and effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any errors that have occurred.

Want to be included?

If you or your organisation has a suitable heated venue that could open its doors this winter, we would like to hear from you and include your offer in the directory.

If you’re already providing a Warm Space please tell us about your facilities and services.

As part of the registration process, you will be asked to sign up to the Warm Spaces Charter which is intended to help residents who wish to use the Warm Spaces to know what to expect from a Warm Spaces building - a guarantee of respect, dignity and warmth.

As a Warm Space provider, you can also access additional supporting information including signposting details.
