We believe Norfolk can be a place where everybody thrives.

But right now, too many of us are going without enough food to eat, heat for our homes or even a roof over our heads. We are building up debts just from paying day to day bills. Money worries take a toll on our physical and mental health. At the same time, disabled people and those with ill-health are pushed further into financial struggles.

The Norfolk Anti-Poverty Alliance is a movement of organisations and individuals who want to create a future where all of us can thrive.

In spring 2024 we are launching a project to tell the story of what is going wrong in Norfolk, and show what needs to change.

We are inviting charities, community groups, social enterprises, statutory organisations and individuals to join in, because this work will take all of us.

Do you provide support services for people in Norfolk? Carry out research into issues affecting people across the county? Campaign with or on behalf of residents? Or do you just want to add your voice to this movement? If so, we want to hear from you.

The Anti-Poverty Alliance was kick-started by the Trussell Trust, following a roundtable in autumn 2023 on hunger in Norfolk. Norfolk Community Advice Network (NCAN) is coordinating the alliance. This builds on on our work declaring a Cost of Living Emergency and calling for an extension to the Household Support Fund.
