The full list of warm spaces across South Tyneside to help residents this winter - and when they are open

The spaces have been introduced as a way to support residents as energy bills remain high.

With the cost of energy showing no sign of decreasing, local authorities are planning ways to ensure residents across the UK are able to stay warm this winter and South Tyneside Council have announced a series of spaces across the region can be used as community areas. Select spaces also allow residents to get support and advice.

Additional ways to get support can be found through South Tyneside Council's website while a series of support payments will further assist households through ongoing cost of living crisis.
