Take a break from the autumn and winter chill by making a date to enjoy Cosy Mondays at Southway’s Southern Gate office. 

We'll be opening up The Forum as a Warm Welcome Space between 10.30am and 1.30pm every Monday from 23rd October until 25th March, apart from Christmas Day and New Year's Day.All local residents, not just Southway tenants, are more than welcome. 

Just like last year’s events, you’re invited to come in for a catch-up and a cuppa. There'll also be books, board games and snacks to enjoy. Children are welcome too. 

While you're here, you'll be able to take a look at our Kindness Rail and choose from the clothing and shoes you can take home for free, no questions asked.

You can also arrange a chat with our friendly Advice Team to talk about important issues such as energy and finance. Wi-Fi and charging points are also available if you’d like to use your phone, tablet or laptop.  

Monday 18th March - Support to Succeed (Employment and skills support)

Cosy Mondays and Support to Succeed are bringing you a special session to offer practical career support in a relaxed, friendly environment.
