We’ve partnered with Ipswich Housing Action Group (ihAg) to support local people facing the realities of having no safe space to call home. ihAg provides showers, hot food and drink – and somewhere for people to wash their clothes. Through their work with health, addiction, and other support agencies, they make sure basic human needs are met. They give advice and guidance to everyone who comes to their door for help.
Safe Homes for Suffolk.
In 1849 our founders set out to “improve the social position and promote the moral elevation of the unenfranchised population of this country”.
We are dedicated to continuing this ambitious mission, and reducing inequality across the county.
Working with partners to help provide safe homes.
Supporting those with nowhere to call home
Avoiding social isolation and homelessness
We’re working with Emmaus Suffolk who provide front line services to those people facing the prospect of homelessness to try to prevent it happening. The charity supports those experiencing social exclusion or long-term unemployment. This is delivered through volunteering and work opportunities at their network of community cafes, house clearance services and up-cycling workshops.
Supporting those experiencing domestic abuse
We’ve established a partnership with Lighthouse, the Women’s Aid organisation, to support women impacted by domestic abuse and help with the provision of refuge accommodation.
Providing financial education
We’re supporting people to manage their money through an ambitious financial education programme, both in schools and elsewhere where we’re needed.
Supporting our communities.
