Partnering with Warm Welcome
We've recently partnered with the Warm Welcome campaign, which is a community response to the deepening crisis of fuel poverty.
This autumn and winter the UK is facing a national crisis as the cost of living continues to increase, meaning that many cannot afford to heat their homes or buy food. This crisis will affect everyone to a degree, but it will most affect those who are already vulnerable, or in poverty.
The aim of the Warm Welcome campaign is to support thousands of churches and community organisations to open their doors to those struggling to heat their homes. The campaign provides guidance, resources and financial support for these churches and organisations, and is powered by a coalition of charities, convened by the Good Faith Foundation.
We're thankful to be part of the steering group who are facilitating and driving forward the initiative of the Warm Welcome Campaign, which aims to encourage churches and other community buildings to open their doors this winter.
If you're a church with a building, or an organisation or charity who have a space that you can open up, have a look at how you can sign-up on their website.
By signing up to be a Warm Welcome you will receive access to a bank of resources, such as Acts 435, which will enable you to provide extra help and support to those coming into your building, as well as additional support and encouragement for your volunteers and organisation. You will also be placed on an interactive map that will soon feature on the Warm Welcome website, and those seeking a warm space can find you there.
Don't forget that Acts 435 can be a resource for both churches and local organisations to meet the specific needs of those accessing these warm spaces. You can read more about how we can do this here.
