Warm Welcome Spaces
To accommodate the cost of living crisis and the struggles people in the local area may be having with the colder weather, Lewisham Local has coordinated a network of local establishments to set up as 'Warm Welcomes'.
The support in different establishments will vary, with free offers from hot drinks or hot food to social activities and additional support facilities. This is a brilliant opportunity to support those in need and encourage a community spirit approach.
Here is a calendar of spaces that are opening their doors.

Lewisham Community Toilet Scheme
Ever have difficulty finding a toilet when out and about? Well, Lewisham Council has commissioned a toilet scheme where local businesses, cafés, community centres and libraries offer their facilities free of charge if you're caught short. This enables clean, safe, and accessible facilities to be found easily in the Lewisham area.
Find an up-to-date toilet list here (symbols will indicate wheelchair access and baby changing facilities) and follow the link here to read more about the initiative.
Look out for the toilet logo in your area!
