With the rising cost of living and significant hike in fuel and utility costs during winter '22 TPT supported local churches to create a network of Warm Spaces across the city open throughout the week.

Thanks to funding from the National Grid Community Fund, TPT was able to provide funding and resources to many churches across the city to open up their buildings on additional days and evenings throughout the winter months. Each church offered a minimum of a hot drink in a warm building with toilet facilities. Some of the additional FREE offers from churches included:

  • Cooked meals
  • Device charging points
  • Desks for home working
  • Family movies
  • Take home warm packs
  • After school study groups
  • Games events
  • Reading corners
  • Preschool play groups
  • Lego & jigsaw clubs
  • Cooking courses
  • Budgeting advice

TPT also partnered with Warm Spaces UK to co-host their national map resource for Plymouth residents.
