New Community Hub!

Updated: May 15

Our Community Hub has moved! We are still in The Shires, but are now on the East Entrance, by Mastershoe and Vodafone.

The new venue has a lot more space than our previous unit, including a private booth space for appointments, comfy sofas, craft provision, and a new much-needed office for our staff. It has been purpose-designed to host our daily sessions, including our Kindness Café, our Craft Group, and our English Lessons.

From Monday to Wednesday, 10am-2pm, and Thursday, 10am-1pm, the Hub is open to all as a space for support, signposting, 1-to-1 advice sessions, guidance on using other services, and information about local provisions.

The Mayor of Trowbridge, Cllr Stephen Cooper, who chose Trowbridge Future as one of his Charities of the Year for this year, cut our ribbon! He said: "I'm incredibly proud to have been in some small way associated with their contribution to our town's wellbeing and yes, our town's future.

"The opening of this new, larger and better-equipped hub here in The Shires will mean that the constructive and forward-looking services Trowbridge Future offers to residents will now be more accessible and open to more people."

Zoe Meaden, Community Manager, said: "The opening of this larger unit has given us a new lease of life and a greater capacity to support more people.

We are really grateful for the continuing support of Selwood Housing to enable us to reach a wide range of local residents offering support and signposting around housing and other support needs.

This new space would not have been possible to open without the help of The Nationwide Foundation and The National Lottery Community Fund. We are so grateful for the support we have received from these funds!

Ben Betteridge from the local Trowbridge branch of Nationwide came down to help us open the new Hub. Zoe got to talk to him about how the funding received from the Nationwide Community Foundation helped us make our dream of a new Hub a reality.

The Hub is currently open on Monday-Wednesday, 10am-2pm, and Thursday, 10am-1pm. Feel free to pop in for a cup of tea to hear about the services we provide.
