The Impact of Warm Welcome Spaces across the Diocese of Leeds

Over the latter part of 2022, many people in the UK (Wellsprings included) were extremely concerned about the cost of living crisis, and the corresponding response from churches, other faith groups and community organisations was remarkable.
