Trowbridge Service Users GroupSince its inception in 2018, Trowbridge Service Users Group in Wiltshire has evolved into a beacon of community support and creative expression. 

Initially conceived within the Community Room at Tesco Extra Trowbridge, the group’s humble beginnings were characterised by a grand vision and scant financial resources. The core concept was to establish a nurturing environment devoid of the pressures of work or therapy, where individuals could congregate socially and forge meaningful connections. Regular arts and crafts sessions quickly emerged as a cornerstone of the group’s success. 

In 2023, a significant milestone was reached as Trowbridge Service Users Group secured its own dedicated space. During sessions, members are encouraged to participate in activities at their own pace and according to their individual preferences. Whether it's painting, glass fusion, weaving or felting, the freedom to pursue one's artistic inclinations is celebrated and supported.

Mark Marshall said: “Through the provision of a welcoming and supportive environment, we strive to empower individuals, foster creativity, and forge enduring connections that transcend the confines of our physical space. As we look to the future, our commitment to promoting mental health and social cohesion remains unwavering, fueled by the collective spirit of our dedicated members and the continued support of our broader community.”
