A Warm Welcome in Shropshire

You are currently viewing the beta version of A Warm Welcome in Shropshire, which means we're still working on improving things. We'd love to hear your feedback; you can tell us what you think here.

Many of our voluntary and community organisations, along with libraries and leisure centres, are opening again as Shropshire Warm Welcome venues this autumn and winter. These are local places where you can go that are safe, warm, inclusive, friendly, and fun. You can just turn up!

Each venue has different opening times, facilities, and things on offer. Click the 'Warm Welcome locations' button on this page to check what’s available before you go, as venue offerings and opening times may vary over the autumn and winter.

At all Warm Welcome venues, you’ll find:

  • A warm welcome where you can enjoy the venue’s facilities with others
  • Inclusive and easy access for all
  • A warm environment where you can sit and enjoy some peace or an activity
  • Information to help with rising energy and living costs and financial support

Most venues have toilets either in the building or close by. Please check before your travel.

What makes a Shropshire Warm Welcome venue

  • Free and open to all
