Warm Spaces

To support the local community, we have created a directory of Warm Spaces in Croydon. These are heated, safe and friendly locations in the borough that you can visit for free to keep warm.

Croydon’s Warm Spaces will also support residents by allowing them to meet and spend time with other members of the community, as we understand that this time of year can be challenging for those who aren’t able to spend the winter period with family and loved ones.

Each Warm Space is slightly different. In addition to helping people to keep warm this winter; some locations may also be offering free hot food, drinks, Wi-Fi and device charging. If you would like to access a Warm Space, please use the link below to get started.

If you have an enquiry or any questions about our support on Warm Spaces, please contact us at communityrelations@croydon.gov.uk.
