Wiltshire Council is holding a series of meetings to outline setting the budget for 2016/17.
The meetings in Devizes, Chippenham, Trowbridge and Salisbury will be an opportunity for the council to outline its budget proposals for next year and how it plans to meet the challenges it faces.
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
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.
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
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.
Carers Support Wiltshire are a charity that offers support to unpaid carers. They cannot do this without volunteers who support carers local to where they live. If you are interested in volunteering, more information on the poster.
