Warm spaces

Warm space grants

Warm spaces have returned this autumn with the continuation of the cost of living crisis. Community groups and organisations can apply for funding for warm spaces this winter, to support residents who are struggling to heat their homes. The maximum grant is £1000 and the amount will depend on the number of hours offered and potential beneficiaries. To qualify organisations must provide heating, seating and a warm drink and biscuit, free of charge. Find out more on the Derbyshire County Council website.
