Urgent Appeal for Volunteers

The Trowbridge Area Community Link Scheme (TACLS) is urgently seeking more volunteers in order to maintain and hopefully increase the volume of services it provides. Several members of our village are already very much involved with this scheme which works to help local people in a friendly and personal way but we now desperately need more helpers as the demand for our services continues to grow. TACLS aims to provide people in need with:
1. Transport to and from Hospitals, Doctors and Dental Surgeries and other medically related
services.
2. Transport to visit relatives and friends in Hospitals and Care Homes.
3. Transport to local group meetings so that people who are no longer able to drive can maintain
contact with their friends.
4. Assistance with shopping or doing shopping from a list for people who are housebound.

Bus Services Consulation

Wiltshire Council has launched a public consultation on the future of the bus services that they currently support. Set against a backdrop of a big reduction in overall funding for council services, they have put forward a number of options aimed at saving money from the supported buses budget, and are asking for your view on these.

Please have you say

Warm and Safe Volunteers Wanted

We are running a project in Wiltshire called Warm and Safe Wiltshire . It is partnership between Wiltshire Council and Bristol Charity: The Centre for Sustainable Energy.

It is a health related project providing a service for people affected by cold living conditions and suffering from health conditions, helping them to save money on their energy bills and keep warm in their homes.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help us deliver the project and I have attached a couple of posters that explain a bit more about the type of opportunities that are available.

Warm & Safe Wiltshire

Living in a cold home can be bad for your health.  Consistently low temperatures in your home may exacerbate existing health issues (particularly respiratory and cardiovascular conditions) and make it harder for you to recover from illnesses.  It can cause you and your family to feel miserable at home, effecting concentration, dexterity and mental health. 

Residents can now contact Warm & Safe Wiltshire - the commitment from Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service and their partners to help residents live in safer and healthier homes - and a one stop shop for all cold home and energy queries.  The service provides free, impartial advice about keeping your home warm, understanding your heating system and energy bills, switching energy supplier, making energy saving improvements and a comprehensive home fire safety check where eligible.  Energy advice can be given through home visits as well as over the phone.
