As the cost of living crisis deepens and with winter approaching Wrexham County Borough Council intends to do everything it can to support its residents during these difficult times.
The council needs the help and support from our partners as well as community groups and organisations across the county borough to work together to support vulnerable individuals and families.
The council is looking to provide a network of ‘warm places’ to support anyone struggling with the cost of living. We are keen to work with any community group or organisation that would be able to provide warm spaces within their community.
Cllr David A Bithell, Deputy Leader of the Council and Chair of the Cost of Living Group, said: “The cost of living crisis that the UK is experiencing is putting unprecedented pressures on people, who are being forced to make tough decisions about when and what they eat, what they can do in life, and when they can afford to heat their home.
“We want to do more to help Wrexham residents, but we can’t do this alone. We’re keen to work with community groups and organisations, building on the great work carried out during the pandemic, to create a network of warm places where people can come together, get warm, stay warm and enjoy some company.
“If any organisation or community group are able to provide a warm place this winter, we want to hear from you. This is our collective opportunity to make a positive difference to our communities and will help residents during this crisis.”
