Poverty, Deprivation and Exclusion


Many areas of the county are generally considered to be affluent, which conceals significant pockets of deprivation where communities, families and individuals are facing real hardship. Charities and community groups are often best placed to recognise and respond to local needs, and with many frontline services under pressure, they represent a vital source of support and assistance to those facing particular challenges.

Norfolk Community Foundation support a range of organisations countywide that offer direct and practical help to those in need, and develop local solutions to support marginalised communities.
