Help us tackle the housing crisis in Frome

If you’d like to help us tackle the housing crisis in Frome, please make sure you stay in touch.

You can do this by signing up to the FHfF newsletter, attending our events, and following us on Facebook.

You can also support FHfF by telling people about our work and/or sharing our events and posts on Facebook.

Could you also help with general tasks such as putting up posters or other core tasks?

What skills can you offer?

Contact Mel at info@fairhousingforfrome.org.uk.

Call for new board members - March 2020
Could this be you?

Are you a local resident with good links in the community and some understanding of insecure housing and homelessness, either through your own experience or the experience of friends and family? Or are you someone with professional skills related to housing, fundraising, development and marketing, or a strategic thinker who can help turn vision into reality?

It’s also important to us to have as much diversity as possible on the board of directors, in terms of age, gender and experience.

We are a friendly open-minded group that meets approximately every two months, with other events and activities in between. This is a voluntary position, and following a trial period, we’re looking for a commitment of two to three years. 

We’ve put together a simple application form: you can either download it from the website or request a copy from info@fairhousingforfrome.org.uk. If you’d like to discuss the role further, please contact Ali Barclay on 07813 975582. 

Do you have a particular interest in any of the three areas that FHfF currently works in?

Homelessness

Support the Frome Coldweather Shelter, originally set up by FHfF but now run by Elim Connect Centre. You can volunteer or make a donation here.

Help us reach more people in the town by hosting a presentation to your community group or church.

Contact us to discuss what would work for you.

Renters, Landlords and Lodgers

We are always interested in hearing from renters and exploring how FHfF can offer better support to you. Contact Mel below.

Join the Frome Landlords Association and help us explore how landlords can be a force for good in Frome. Contact Alison below.

Would you or someone you know be interested in taking in a lodger or helping us to develop a lodging scheme? Contact us.

Community-led Housing

Become a member of the Frome Area Community Land Trust (FACLT).

Volunteer at the Frome Tiny Homes event: Contact Mel below.

Join a small team to monitor new housing developments in the town. Contact us below.

All our projects are run in partnership with volunteers, so if there any other ways that you’d like to get involved, or any housing and homelessness issues that you particularly care about, please write to us – thank you!
