Trowbridge Town Council: Keeping warm and safe this winter

We’re back with our guide of resources to help you navigate through the tougher, winter months.
 
During difficult times, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to turn for help. That’s why we are committed to providing you with the information you need to get through tough times.
 
If you’re struggling with financial hardship, we can connect you with local organisations that offer financial assistance and budgeting advice. We can also help you access support like food banks and affordable housing options.
 
But we know that tough times aren’t just about finances. Sometimes, you just need a little extra support to help you feel better. There are so many resources on offer to help you stay healthy and happy, including mental health services, community support groups, and wellness programs.
 
You will see our leaflets around the town and of course, they will be available from the Info Services team or call us and we will send you a copy.

 

What does our guide cover?

Welcoming Warm Spaces and Winter Activities

We’ve compiled a list of cosy spots around town where you can warm up and recharge. Visit local cafes or community centres where a warm welcome is always waiting for you.

Helping you identify what you might need help with

When it comes to financial support, there are numerous things that you may need help with. For instance, you may need support with your living expenses, unexpected expenses or during times of unemployment.

Areas covered:

‘I am in debt’

‘My money doesn’t stretch as fas it used to’

‘I suddenly have no money’

‘I am waiting on a benefit decision/payment’

Advising you of your options and where to seek further help

If you are facing a difficult situation and don’t know where to turn, it’s important to remember that you have options. Whether you’re dealing with a personal problem, a legal issue, or a mental health concern, there are resources available to you.

If you don’t feel comfortable confiding in someone you know, there are also helplines and support groups you can access.

Depending on the nature of your situation, you may also want to consider seeking professional help. There are many qualified professionals who can offer guidance and support, and it’s important to find someone who you feel comfortable working with.

Remember, there is no shame in asking for help. In fact, seeking support is a sign of strength and self-awareness. Don’t be afraid to reach out and explore your options – there are people who care and want to help you through whatever you’re facing.
