We are delighted to be supporting the following organisations this year;
Norwich City Women
Norwich City Women is the women’s football club affiliated to Norwich City FC. The women’s team which has historically been operated completely by a board of volunteers, was integrated into Norwich City FC in February 2022. The team currently play in the fourth tier of English women’s football.
Streets2Homes is a charity based in Harlow, Essex who provide a day centre which seeks to reach out to and help homeless people. We provide a safe and friendly environment in which we can assist them in a number of ways including finding accommodation.
The demand for housing in this area always outstrips availability so it can take time to find suitable accommodation and we are always looking for good landlords to work with us. The day centre provides a place to access housing advice and practical assistance to secure accommodation, social contact, training sessions, employment advice, health services, washing facilities, food, clothing, general guidance and support.
We cannot do all the work ourselves but we have links with a wide range of agencies and organisations that we can contact to try to get the appropriate type of assistance to meet the needs of our clients.
The Harlow Foodbank works in partnership with churches, schools, supermarkets, businesses and front-line professional care agencies to provide a very valuable community resource.
The Foodbank is designed to help individuals and families in crisis by providing free emergency food until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist.
Our aim is to engage with communities, introducing sustainable projects that enable marginalised people to break through their cycle of poverty.
