Frome Community Hub

Frome Town Council and partners are delighted to share the Community Hub calendar.  With an increase in the need for community support groups, the Town Hall has increasingly become home to several drop-in services.  Local practitioners including Frome Welcome Hub for Displaced People, Citizens Advice, Safe Link, and Prosper Frome are working together to create a central point for people to access help and information.

The Hub provides an access point that is welcoming and universal, aiming to support residents to access all the services that they need.
