Warm hubs

Warm Hubs are back!

We welcome you to come for a chat, have a hot drink and stay a while.

As the cold weather sets in and temperatures plummet, Tower Hamlets Council has set up a series of Warm Hubs for residents who may feel isolated or worried about heating their home due to rising costs.

Warm Hubs provide dedicated spaces for people to socialise and stay warm during the cold winter months.

Refreshments will be provided plus games and activities to keep residents entertained.

Staff will also be on hand to signpost to advice and support services if needed.
