YOUNG people at risk in Wiltshire are to receive extra help, after local charities received a funding boost from the Police and Crime Commissioner. Twelve projects from across the county have received £315,000 from Angus MacPher-son’s £1million Innovation Fund, which supports the most vulnerable members of society. Trowbridge based youth services charity Alabaré received £20,228 to provide overnight accommodation for young people with nowhere else to go. Vanessa Brown, from the charity, said: “Sometimes when young people are picked up off the street, either as runaways or at risk, there is a delay in finding suitable accommodation overnight. “We’ve heard stories of young people being put in a police cell for their own safety, because if they are sitting at a police station an officer has to sit with them, and on a busy Friday night that just doesn’t happen.” The charity can now provide a bed in Trowbridge and Salis-bury, to relieve pressure on the police. Ms Brown said: “This will give us enough money to run the project for 12 months, and take up to two young people per night for up to seven days.” Trowbridge-based counselling charity Splitz also benefited from the grants, with £35,000 to address domestic abuse among teenagers. Fundraising coordinator Andrew Farrow said: “There is physical violence, emotional abuse and lack of sexual respect in some teen relationships. In our work on a one-to-one basis we noticed a change in attitude.

As a cyclist it is very noticeable that both cyclists and vehicles do not switch their headlights on during inclement weather. Over the last few weeks fog, thick in places, has been prevalent in the Trowbridge area, yet vehicles and cyclists seem to think that there is no need to switch on their headlights or cyclists to have any lights on their bikes. − Ron Kirkwood, TrowbridggeBe seen and be safe »
I felt I had to write and complain about the newly refurbishment of The Shires toilets in Trowbridge. Myself and I am sure plenty of other ladies are having to put handbags and shopping on the wet dirty floors as no door hooks have been replaced. − Mrs J Higgs, TrowbridgeInconvenient loos »
