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 and safe as we enter 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.

Following from the warm places which became prominent across the region last year, the sites are now known as welcome places.
