Council supports 20 community groups offering warm spaces to residents

Council supports 20 community groups offering warm spaces to residents Warm Spaces in Exeter

Twenty community groups and organisations providing warm spaces for residents this winter have been supported with grants by the City Council.

Warm Spaces Grants of up to £500 were available for organisations to apply for on the Council’s website.

The grant was designed to help with the additional costs community groups will face this winter.

Warm spaces provide residents with somewhere to keep warm, enjoy company and access support if they are struggling to cope with the cost of living.

Cllr Martin Pearce, Lead Councillor of Communities & Homelessness Prevention, said: “We want to ensure that as many residents as possible are supported through the cost of living emergency over the winter.

“The Council made sure that its grants programme was available to support those offering help through a Warm Spaces Grant, and I am really pleased that we have been able to support so many organisations who are doing such great work in the community.

“This isn’t something that the City Council has a statutory duty to do, but when people are facing a cost of living emergency we can’t stand by and do nothing, so I am delighted we been able to provide this support.”

Councillors recently declared a Cost of Living Emergency and called on the Government to introduce an Emergency Budget and take urgent action to protect the people of Exeter from further harm.
