Community Hot-Spots

One of our partners – the Norfolk Community Foundation – is helping to provide over 120 Community Hot-Spots for people living locally. Groups across Norfolk have received grants of £2,000 to help support the estimated 62,000 people living in fuel poverty in Norfolk this winter.

 

What is a Community Hot-Spot?

A Community Hot-Spot is more than just a warm space for people to take a break from the cold. They are welcoming spaces, where people can meet with friends and family while having the option to access services to make this winter more bearable. Whether this is a warm meal and a hot drink, or access to specialist services like money advice or a food bank referral, people can empower themselves to get what they need.

 

How can people access a Community Hot-Spot?

Community Hot-Spots are open at least once a week. As inclusive spaces, everyone is welcome to come in and get out of the cold, access warm drinks or food, be with other people or find support. We’ve made this interactive map of all the projects we have directly supported, but all Hot-Spots will be listed along with local Libraries and others similar projects on the Warm Welcome website.

A second round of funding, which has recently closed, means that even more warm spaces will be opening up across the county soon, take a look at the map below on our website to find you closest Community Hot-Spot.
