Young people are being urged to take advantage of a new warm space that opened this winter. 

Those in Norwich and Great Yarmouth can now benefit from the space provided by the youth charity, MAP. 

A MAP spokesperson said: “As temperatures get colder and many may be sleeping rough or struggling to heat their homes, free, warm spaces like these become vitally important.

“These community hot-spots will be a space where those in the community aged 11 to 25 can spend time in MAP’s drop in space, seek advice and support, and access a drink or snack.” 

The hot-spots are located at the Risebrow Centre in the city, Monday to Friday, and Deneside in Great Yarmouth on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Both will be open between 1.30pm and 5pm.
