Cost-of-living support sessions taking place this month

A series of advice sessions to support residents with the cost-of-living crisis will take place this month.

Libraries in Wrexham have been hosting these sessions since early-October. They bring together various organisations to over advice around energy saving and reducing your bills.

Sessions will take place on the following dates in January and February:

  • 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.”

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

The first spaces available are libraries across the county borough where anyone who wants to can come inside to be warm and comfortable.

The local authority is continuing to look to provide a network of ‘warm places’ to support anyone struggling with the cost of living.

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