Where are all the warm banks in the South West? These are the confirmed locations so far

The cost of living crisis will force thousands to stop heating their homes this winter.

Spaces dubbed 'warm banks' have been set up in the South West to help people this winter amid soaring energy prices.

Charities, community groups and councils have set up the warm banks in places including libraries and community centres in a bid to protect the most vulnerable groups as the cost of living crisis continues.

While services and opening times will vary between locations, most hubs will be providing warm shelter as well as hot food and drink.

Some hubs will also organise drop-in sessions about energy-saving tactics and people struggling to cope will be directed towards organisations that offer help.

Warm banks in Bristol have been split into two tiers.

Tier 1 includes spaces where people can share and use resources and seek support relating to the cost-of-living crisis.

Tier 2 includes spaces with more restricted opening times. They are open to all but may have some activity restricted to a specific community.
