Organisations at the cost of living drop-in support session at Coedpoeth Library on December 2

We want to remind residents that libraries in Wrexham are continuing to host cost of living drop-in support sessions where various organisations will be on hand to offer advice around energy saving and reducing your bills.

Libraries in Wrexham have been hosting these sessions since early-October, but there are still plenty of dates coming up. These are:

  • Friday, December 16, 2022 – Rhos Library, 11am-3pm
  • Friday, January 6, 2023 – Gwersyllt Library, 2pm-5pm
  • Friday, January 20, 2023 – Ruabon Library, 2pm-5pm
  • Friday, February 3, 2023 – Llay Library, 2pm-5pm
  • Friday, February 17, 2023 – Wrexham Library, 10am-2pm

Cllr David A Bithell, Chair of the Cross Party Cost of Living Group, said: “Appointments aren’t needed, just drop by during the time slots on these dates and you’ll get to speak face-to-face to the different organisations, who will be able to give you advice. Making sure you claim everything you’re entitled to can make a huge difference, so this is a good opportunity to gather some information that could help to reduce your bills this winter.”

Warm Places

With the current cost of living crisis leaving many residents worried about heating their homes throughout the colder months, we’ve began establishing community Warm Places in Wrexham – already existing heated spaces where people are welcome to come to get warm.

We’re starting with our own libraries, where anyone who wants to can come inside to be warm and comfortable.

We’re looking to provide a network of ‘warm places’ to support anyone struggling with the cost of living. We’re keen to work with any community group or organisation that would be able to provide warm spaces within their community.

If you are a group or organisation who can provide a warm place please email warmplaces@wrexham.gov.uk

In your email, please include the following details:

  • Organisation name
  • Address
  • Email
  • Telephone number/Mobile
  • Contact person

(Please note it is an expectation that the basic offer of a warm place is FREE of charge to all attendees).

For more information, please visit the Warm Places webpage.

You can find other warm spaces in your community on the warm welcome website.

Or if your organisation has a warm space, we recommend that you register on the warm welcome website to make it easier for people to find you.
