Warm spaces

Some of our buildings and other venues are open as warm spaces. You can also find out about grants to open a warm space.

Warm spaces grants

Voluntary, community and charity organisations in Derbyshire can apply for a grant to set up warm spaces this winter.

We have launched a warm spaces fund to support organisations to provide a warm refuge for residents and their families struggling to heat their homes.

Organisations can apply for up to £1,000 towards the cost of opening up community venues or to extend their opening hours during the colder months.

The amount of grant funding awarded will be determined following both assessment of eligibility criteria and consideration of the amount of hours that the warm space will be open, as well as the number of potential beneficiaries.

If you would like to apply for a warm spaces grant please email for an application form.

Applications will be accepted up to the 1 March 2023, or until the funding allocated to the programme has been fully spent (whichever is sooner).

To qualify for a grant, organisations must pledge to offer a heated space during the winter months, provide seating, offer refreshments such as a warm drink and a biscuit and be free of charge.

If you're an organisation or charity that is running a warm spaces venue, please let us know and we'll add your details to the list, email:

People visiting warm spaces will be offered information to help them with cost of living support, as well as advice on looking after their mental health and wellbeing. You can also sign up to our cost of living emails to get the latest support, advice and information.
