Join the community’s response to tackling rough sleeping.

Norwich Street Aid is a simple way to “Give help” and “Get help” in the city.

  • Give help – Your donation is combined with hundreds of others into a Fund to make a difference to people sleeping rough in Norwich.  Whether it’s making a valuable donation, offering your time or giving practical items – you can help make a difference in Norwich.
  • Get help – Norwich Street Aid offers practical solutions to people rough sleeping in the city by giving them access to funding that will make a meaningful difference to them.  Led by Pathways Norwich alongside Norwich BID, an alliance of local charitable services supporting homeless and rough sleepers, front line workers will help direct the funding to where it is most needed to make an immediate difference to people’s lives.

“Rough sleeping is becoming increasingly visible in Norwich, the campaign uses the latest technology to raise crucial funds, to enable those on the streets to receive practical support to help them secure accommodation.”

Stefan Gurney, Executive Director of Norwich BID
Why should I give?

Every donation, whether it’s your money, time or resources, will help towards transforming the lives of rough sleepers in your city – from furnishing a new home to providing funds to learn new skills, your donation will create endless opportunities to change the futures of rough sleepers in Norwich.

In many cases, a small amount of money can make a big difference.

How do people access help from Norwich Street Aid?

If you are already working with Pathways Norwich, please speak directly to your key worker. Alternatively, if you are working with any services that are supporting you with your homelessness they will be able to submit an application on your behalf via a dedicated email address streetaidnorwich@thefeed.org.uk. Support groups or other bodies supporting rough sleepers or homeless people who wish to refer an individual to Norwich Street Aid can do so at the same email address.

Who will benefit?

Rough sleepers and homeless people in Norwich will directly benefit from Street Aid in a way that is tailored to their individual needs.  The Pathways partner organisations will receive referrals on behalf of individuals on the streets, and through a quick and simple process Street Aid funds can help.

Costs the Street Aid fund may assist with include:

  • Travel to a job interview or support appointment
  • Training courses
  • Safety work equipment or clothing
  • Household items for a new home
  • Help to reconnect with family

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!If you are a UK taxpayer, add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Norfolk Community Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Norfolk Community Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like Norfolk Community Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Norfolk Community Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Norfolk Community Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we’re entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
