Warm up for winter – PCP supports Warm Spaces Scheme

Starting this Thursday, the Pioneering Care Centre will be offering a ‘Warm Space’ for local people to come together and enjoy a range of activities and a hot snack.

The sessions will run weekly on a Thursday from 3:30pm until 5:30pm and all are welcome. We’ll have games, seasonal crafts, children’s fitness and much more.

Carol Gaskarth, Chief Executive at PCP, said: “The cost of living crisis is affecting everyone with rising utility bills and the price of a weekly shop increasing all the time.

"The Pioneering Care Centre is a community resource, and we want to be able to provide support to local people during what could be a difficult winter.

“The sessions are aimed at families with primary school aged children, taking place straight after school, each week we’ll be offering free fun activities and a hot meal will be provided too. This first week is pizza making which I’m sure will go down a treat. Give us a call or drop us an email to book your spaces.”

Over 40 places have committed to providing Warm Spaces across County Durham where people can go to keep warm and enjoy meeting others and PCP is grateful to County Durham Community Foundation for funding to assist with these sessions.

To book, please call the Pioneering Care Centre on 01325 321234 or email
