We believe everyone has the right to a safe home. Lack of affordable housing, debt and life events can push people from all walks of life into homelessness. Others may feel unsafe in their home through the threat of domestic abuse. We’re supporting Ipswich Housing Action Group, Emmaus Suffolk and Lighthouse Women’s Aid to provide access to safe homes.

Safe Homes for Suffolk
Our natural environment is under threat. We’re backing impactful initiatives to protect local nature and wildlife. Supporting Suffolk Wildlife Trust to return 289 acres of arable land back to nature at Martlesham Wilds is the first of these projects.
Working together with our partners.
For maximum impact, we’re backing four amazing organisations – all experts in their field – from now until at least 2024. In December 2022 we donated £25,000 to these charities. In December 2023 we’re donating £45,000. How £10,000 of this amount is allocated is decided by our members.
Suffolk Wildlife Trust – safeguarding Suffolk’s wildlife and countryside.
Ipswich Housing Action Group – Supporting people to take action to help themselves keep their home.
Emmaus Suffolk – working with vulnerable, socially isolated people and those at risk of homelessness across the county.
Lighthouse – supporting women impacted by domestic abuse.
