Almost 30 council and community venues have been announced as part of a network of designated welcome places for Glaswegians ahead of the onset of winter and as the cost of living and energy crisis continues to impact people of all ages.
The Council, working in partnership with Glasgow Life and voluntary sector organisations, has committed to providing as much practical support as possible over the next few months - and opening doors to anyone who needs that additional help in what is being heralded as the most challenging winter due to a range of factors.
