Description

Launch Event: Norwich Street Aid, the Community's Response To Rough Sleeping

Join us at the Forum for the launch of Norwich Street Aid and learn more about this exciting new scheme and how you can support while networking with like-minded organisations. Together we can contribute to positive change in our city centre.

What is Norwich Street Aid?

Norwich Street Aid was the vision of the Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) and a response from the business community who were concerned about the level of people rough sleeping on the city’s streets. Norwich Street Aid is a partnership between Norwich BID, Pathways and the Norfolk Community Foundation. Using the latest contactless technology, donations can be made towards a central funding pot which will be distributed to the individuals who need it most.

There are already many hard-working organisations and individuals helping to tackle the issues of rough sleeping and homelessness in the city. Norwich Street Aid is a joint partnership between those organisations, collectively tackling the challenges and concerns faced by those who rough sleep. Working together with a wide range of services and resources, Norwich Street Aid aims to better help people move away from rough sleeping and lead a life free from homelessness.

How can you and your businesses support Norwich Street Aid?

You can make a donation to Norwich Street Aid, organise fundraising activities, and also engage your employees in spreading the word as a Norwich Street Aid advocate. Show your support for Norwich Street Aid by displaying posters and flyers in your business, or by housing our contactless payment terminal to raise awareness with your customers and staff to make donations to the cause.

Please come to the launch of Norwich Street Aid to show your support. A light breakfast will be provided.

If you have any questions please contact Aidan Lewis at aidan.lewis@norwichbid.co.uk.
