The Warm Welcome Campaign

Warm Welcome is a national campaign. It began when former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Church leaders came together to see what could be done about the cost-of-living crisis. What happened next was quite remarkable. During the worst cost-of-living crisis in 70 years, the Warm Welcome Campaign emerged as a collective response to build a movement for a fairer and friendlier society by supporting warm and welcoming spaces in every community in the UK.
