Hertfordshire's Family Centres are also operating as Warm Spaces, with a range of support and activities to help families play and stay warm, enjoy a hot drink and access help and services they might need.
Councillor Richard Roberts, Leader of Hertfordshire County Council, said: "We want everyone in Hertfordshire to be able to live healthy and fulfilling lives, and I want our residents to know that we are here for you this winter.
"We all need a little support from time to time and we're making sure that advice is available, and people have somewhere warm to connect with others, to help deal with the rising cost of living and to stay well this winter."
For more information about times of events, search for Family Centre in your local area on the Warm Spaces directory
Other support available for residents is being highlighted through the council's Here for You this winter campaign which is shining a light on the services the council delivers, and those it funds other organisations to deliver, to help people manage the rising cost of living as the temperatures drop.
