The vast majority will offer a hot drink and access to wi-fi, while some will be offering hot food. Others include specific activities, spaces for work/recreation and access to books and games, including many child-friendly spaces.
Leader of Hounslow Council, Councillor Shantanu Rajawat, said: “It’s regrettable that in 2022, we find ourselves identifying warm spaces for residents unable to heat their homes affordably.
