The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks and together they provide emergency food and support to people facing hardship, and campaign for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
We have partnered up with Norwich Foodbank (part of The Trussell Trust) to help collect emergency food for people in our community. We regularly request voluntary food donations to be brought to live events for collection by Norwich Foodbank.
New Routes support refugees, asylum seekers and isolated migrants from over 80 countries, speaking 60+ different languages, and promoting cross-cultural integration and community awareness in Norwich.
We work with New Routes to fundraise for their work and to give their clients the opportunity to see performances free of charge.
