Warm Welcome Spaces

Warm Welcome spaces and activities in Causeway Coast and Glens over the winter months

As the cost of living continues to impact and we enter the winter months, Council is working with local partners to promote a network of warm spaces where residents can attend activities or just drop in for a cuppa and some company.

These include libraries, community centres, church halls, sports clubs and other places promising a warm welcome over the winter months.
