Winter Welcome Centres

Winter Welcome Centres have been created all across the County Borough to help keep residents warm and safe this Winter.

This year once again community groups and organisations have worked with Council officers to open 86 community Winter Welcome Centres.

Within each Winter Welcome Centre residents can expect to receive: 

  • Free open access to a warm space.
  • A warm welcome and an opportunity to socialise
  • A free hot drink and warm snack
  • Free Winter items for residents to take home
  • A place to charge mobile devices

In many Winter Welcome Centres much more will be on offer, so please contact the organisation directly either by ‘phone, via social media or go to their web pages for more information on additional activities/events, or support that could be available. (Please note that some activities/times may be dedicated times for children, families, older people or people with disabilities for example).

The list of community Winter Welcomes Centres open across Rhondda , Cynon and Taf is below, (which will be updated regularly) and residents are also able to drop into any Library within the County Borough.
