Welcoming Spaces

Stronger together through winter for our community

Organisations across Stoke-on-Trent are working together to set up a network of FREE Welcoming Spaces over the autumn and winter 2022 to 2023.

A Welcoming Space is a place of connection already established in the community (such as a community centre, library or place of faith), where people can meet up, socialise, and access support, relating to the cost of living. Services available at each Welcoming Space will vary but may include:

  • access to support about money, welfare, and mental wellbeing
    community activities
    access to computers, free Wi-Fi and charging points
    heated space

We’ve opened up our Study Room in the lower mall as a welcoming space, it’s warm, has wifi, beanbags, chairs and tables and phone charging points.
