Connecting communities throughout Warwickshire & Solihull

WRCC’s Warm Hubs project, supported by Cadent, brings residents together and supports communities to tackle social isolation and fuel poverty, plus related cost of living issues, throughout Warwickshire and Solihull. Our charity works with parish councils, village hall committees, community centres and other volunteer groups to create inclusive, community led Warm Hubs, running activities that encourage people to come together in safe, warm, welcoming places.

Residents living in villages and semi-rural areas in particular are often disproportionally affected by lack of access to social events and amenities, poor public transport and fuel costs. All communities have been affected by the devastating impact of Covid on social networks and interaction, followed by the rapidly increasing costs of living.

We collaborate with a wide range of organisations to support our Warm Hubs network, including WCC, District/Borough Councils in Warwickshire, Solihull MBC, Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, Warwickshire Library/Mobile Library Service, CAVA, Act on Energy, Centre for Sustainable Energy and National Energy Action.

We also help Warm Hubs to signpost people to appropriate support, which could include Citizens Advice, Community Foodbanks and Pantries, MIND, NHS prescribers, Family Information Services, Healthwatch Warwickshire, local carers support groups, dementia cafes, and many more.

The British Motor Museum has also visited several of WRCC’s hubs over the past two winters (see above), taking Memory Boxes including all sorts of motor memorabilia, which was greatly enjoyed by all those attending!
