Helping vulnerable people in Norfolk through the cold winter months: Launch of the Surviving Winter appeal

    Launch of the Surviving Winter appeal

As the nights get darker and the temperature drops, Norfolk Community Foundation has once again launched its annual Surviving Winter appeal, providing vital support to help vulnerable people across Norfolk get through the cold winter months.

The onset of the winter months can be a worrying time for many people in Norfolk. The combination of bad weather, colder temperatures and the effects of rural poverty can be a tangible, sometimes disastrous, combination for vulnerable individuals and families. The aim of the Surviving Winter appeal is to provide essential support to people who are struggling and in serious need, to stop them from failing into crisis.

How is the Appeal helping?

Together with the Foundation's partner organisations Age UK Norfolk, homelessness charity St Martins and local foodbanks who work tirelessly on the ground to support those in need across the county, the Foundation is once again taking action this winter. From providing support to help rough sleepers off the streets long term, to helping families heat their homes and keep their children warm, to alleviating loneliness amongst isolated older people who may have no-one else to talk to, the Surviving Winter appeal will transform local lives. For some, this support could mean the difference between life and death.
