Here for you this winter - Cost of Living Support and Surrey Heath’s Warm Hubs


Friday, 16 December, 2022

Surrey Heath Borough Council and our partners are here for you and doing everything we can to help support our local community this winter. The support available includes grants, food vouchers, warm hubs and Cost of Living events. 

Councillor Sarah Jane Croke, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Safeguarding and Support, SHBC said:   

“As we count down to Christmas the weather has turned bitterly cold and we’ve even had some snow. This extreme cold weather puts pressure on us all to heat our homes and feed our families.  

“Last month, together with The Square shopping centre, we ran a Cost of Living event and provided second hand coats, free food and toiletries and information on how to access support to those who needed it. Over fifty people came to the event and I spoke to many of them and appreciate how hard it is for lots of households at the moment. We plan to hold another Cost of Living event in The Square on 23 February, more details will be shared soon on the Council’s website.   

“I want to make sure as many people as possible know about the various support programmes and grants in Surrey Heath available to help you if you are struggling, these are all listed on Surrey Heath’s website – we are here for you.  

“In addition, there are now many Warm Hubs established in the borough where people can spend time in a warm place, and many of these Hubs are also providing hot drinks, support and advice. Please visit them if you need a warm place to go.  

“Many thanks to everyone who is involved with setting up and running these hubs, they are critical in this cold weather. 

“Myself and all my fellow Councillors wish you a safe and happy Christmas .”
