Cardiff hubs offering a warm welcome

Cardiff hubs and libraries are once again offering a warm welcome to customers and residents at this time of year, with the onset of colder weather.

As temperatures fall and many people around the city continue to be concerned about the costs of heating their own homes this winter, hubs and libraries are providing a safe and warm environment for members of the public.

Now in its second year, the warm welcome space initiative is part of Cardiff Council’s response to supporting residents hit by the cost of living crisis. Visitors to hubs and libraries will be able to chat to staff or other visitors and access the support available for residents.  Hot refreshments will also be available but times vary from venue to venue.

People are welcome to call into any of the city’s hubs or libraries during their usual opening hours. Hubs in our area include Rhiwbina, Whitchurch, Llanishen, Rhydypenau, and Llandaff North & Gabalfa. Visit https://cardiffhubs.co.uk/ for details.

Council cabinet member Lynda Thorne, said: “Warm welcome spaces are back in our hubs and libraries because the sad fact is that plenty of people in the city are still struggling and are worried about the rising costs of energy. Our community buildings are bright, welcoming venues where residents can come along, access the library services, use a PC or meet with others in the community.

“Our friendly teams are always on hand so I encourage anyone worried about heating their homes as we approach winter to take us up on our offer of a warm welcome.”

A wide range of advice and support is available at hubs, from housing, benefits, debt support and much more. Anyone looking for help can also contact the Council’s Money Advice team on 029 2087 1071 or email advicehub@cardiff.gov.uk
