You'll be welcomed
Every time you come to a community space you'll be welcomed by the staff and volunteers there.
Everyone is treated equally, with dignity and respect
Everyone treats people, and is treated by people, with dignity and respect.
Your Community Space will be a safe place
Your space will stick to the safeguarding policies that it always uses, and it will stick to food hygiene rules too!
We'll not tell anyone about you needing a Community Space
If you want to share the reasons you use a space, someone will listen, but they won't tell anyone else unless you give them permission, or they must because of their safeguarding policies. If you want to ask for extra support – with benefits, health, fuel and other costs or anything else, the staff will put you in touch with the right people, with your consent.
It doesn't matter why you use a Community Space
Every space is a non-judgemental space; whatever the reason you have for coming in, you'll be treated the same and never judged.
What you can do in a Community Space
Every space will have the option to participate in some activity, from more casual “coffee” hours to a service’s usual activities. If you don’t fancy this, you can always find a seat and bring something with you to do.
Choose your food and drink for your Community Space
Some spaces may have restrictions for food, but most will endeavour to provide food and drink, or allow you to bring your own where suitable. You'll find more information within the venue's description on the directory.
Our Community Spaces have various facilities, with some being cool spaces and others that are warm spaces. Please see service descriptions for more details on the Directory.
