Find a welcome space

Find friendly, welcome spaces in your local community where you can meet others, take part in activities, get a warm drink or meal, find out about cost of living support services or spend some quiet time away from your home.

We have produced a map of local welcome spaces, including places of worship, community centres, libraries and cafes.

Find a welcome space.

We understand that the current high cost of living can make things challenging, so we have gathered a list of welcoming spaces opening their doors to Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole residents. Days, times and what is offered varies from venue to venue, but all offer a friendly and welcoming space. Please look at the links and information below to find out what’s on offer at various venues in your local area.

Find out how you can help with welcome spaces, including letting us know if you are running a space like this.

To look for other locations in your area, check the Warm Welcome website.

If you struggle to access public transport and taxis, there is accessible transport available.
