Trowbridge Community Area Future has, over the past few years, become known as a small, independent charity based within the town, offering support and advice to the local community.
From this month they have rebranded as Trowbridge Future: as a direct result from public and business consultation conducted over the last few months, they realised that a large number of people in the local community didn’t have a more thorough knowledge of their purpose and activities. Trowbridge Future are now keen to engage with the local community to ensure they are meeting their needs.
The team already runs a series of youth cafes across Trowbridge in Longfield, Seymour and Studley Green, and host a thriving Community Hub in The Shires Shopping Centre, providing advice and support to the residents of Trowbridge. The Hub also offers weekly computer lessons on a Wednesday, where everyone is welcome to drop in and learn how to better use their devices, such as mobile phones and tablets. Everyone is always welcome to drop into the Hub, which is open between 9am and 2:30pm, Monday to Friday.
Meg Aubrey, Youth and Community Development Manager at Trowbridge Future, said: “It is a really exciting time seeing our volunteers and staff engaging in the rebrand which has given our charity a new positive direction and opportunity to work with local young people and residents to help them develop their own projects and ideas”.
Trowbridge Future relies on a group of volunteers to keep the Hub open, and are always seeking extra assistance, along with input from the community on what they can do to improve their services. You can find out more by visiting www.trowbridgefuture.org.uk or calling 01225 765072.
