Warm Space

Chopwell Community Centre is part of Gateshead Warm Spaces initiative where residents can be part of a place to go to stay warm this winter.  Our sessions are open to everyone in the community every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday between 9-1pm.  There is 'Free' tea and coffee available to all visitors and if you click the link below, you can find other Warm Space facilities in your area.

You'll get a warm welcome as well as Warm Space

Every time you come to a Warm Space you'll be given a warm welcome from the staff and volunteers there.

Everyone is treated equally, with dignity and respect

Everyone has a right to be warm, so everyone in a Warm Space treats people, and is treated by people, with dignity and respect.

Your Warm Space will be a safe space

Your Warm Space will stick to the safeguarding policies that it always uses, and it will stick to food hygiene rules too!

We'll not tell anyone about you needing a Warm Space

If you want to share the reasons you need a Warm Space, someone will listen, but they won't tell anyone else unless you give them permission, or they must because of their safeguarding policies.

It doesn't matter why you need a Warm Space

Every Warm Space is a non-judgemental space; whatever the reason you have for needing to come in, you'll be treated the same and never judged.
