Welcoming Spaces

Below is a list of available 'Welcoming Spaces' that residents in High Peak can visit to keep warm this winter. The list will provide venue details, where to find more information and will be updated on a regular basis when new venues are identified and registered.

Voluntary, community and charity organisations in Derbyshire can also apply for a grant to set up warm spaces this winter from Derbyshire County Council DCC. They have launched a £50,000 Warm Spaces Fund to support organisations to provide a warm refuge for residents and their families struggling to heat their homes.

Organisations can apply for up to £1,000 towards the cost of opening up community venues or to extend their opening hours during the colder months.

If you would like to apply for a warm spaces grant please email for an application form. There is more information on the DCC website: Warm spaces - Derbyshire County Council
