A Warm Welcome for all

All across Somerset, community groups and venues are opening their doors to provide a warm, welcoming space for anyone who needs it. Every venue has something different to offer; some may be able to provide free food, activities, support with your wellbeing, or maybe somewhere to charge your phone or use a computer. Use the map below to find a Warm Welcome near you.

The Warm Welcome Charter

It’s really important that you are made to feel comfortable, safe and welcome when visiting a Warm Welcome space, so we ask every provider to agree to the following Charter:

  • You’ll get a Warm Welcome as well as warm space
    Every time you visit our venue you’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome from our friendly volunteers and staff.
  • Everyone is treated equally, with dignity and respect
    We all have a right to be warm, so everyone who visits us will be treated with dignity and respect (and we ask for the same in return).
  • Our Warm Welcome will be a safe space
    We will adhere to our usual safeguarding and food hygiene policies. We will also take reasonable precautions to reduce the spread of winter viruses such as flu and Covid.
  • We’ll not tell anyone about you visiting a Warm Welcome
    If you want to share the reasons you visit a Warm Welcome, someone will listen, but we won’t tell anyone else unless you give us permission or we have concerns about your safety.
  • It doesn’t matter why you need a Warm Welcome
    We offer a Warm Welcome without judgement; whatever the reason for visiting, you’ll be treated in the same way as everyone else and never judged.
