THE Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW) is reaching out to third Sector organisations, community groups and not-for-profits in a bid to help the public during the ongoing cost-of-living crisis. 

AVOW is actively seeking out spaces in Wrexham to help the public get warm and also interact with one another by encouraging community groups to complete a form expressing an interest in hosting a space for people to go along to.

You can access the form here:

A spokesperson for AVOW said: "With the cost-of-living crisis starting to bite, such organisations and groups are all thinking of ways to help the public during this trying time.

"In your community activities, do you have space for people to come along, meet people, learn things, and get warm? Perhaps you even offer refreshments as well?


"If you are willing to invite people along to your group and give them a warm welcome please complete the form so that AVOW can help get the message out to the public, and help direct them where they wish to go.

"You may even get more members from this initiative!"

Dawn Roberts-McCabe, AVOW's Chief Officer, said: "We invite as many third sector and not-for-profit organisations and community groups as possible to fill in our form, so that we can help to spread the word about the valuable services and the warm welcome they provide for community members in need."

The Leader: Your Money Matters campaign logo

  • Your Money Matters is a campaign launched by us and our sister titles across Newsquest to help you overcome the surge in the cost of living.

This year has seen a whole host of household price increases — from the energy price cap rise to surging inflation and food prices — costing your family hundreds or even thousands of pounds extra per year.

We’re making it our mission to look out for your cash, offering money-saving deals, competitions, giveaways and insightful stories from your community on the impact this cost-of-living crisis is having on our readers.

The worldwide energy crisis exacerbated by the Ukraine invasion, the financial impact of the Covid pandemic, record inflation figures and a surge in the cost of goods, fuel and travel means we will all feel the pinch.

Through our newspaper, we want to do what we can to help make your cash go further because we know your money matters.
