St Giles Eastern

We offer a range of community-based services working across the region. We train local people at the grassroots who know the communities to become caseworkers supporting others to make positive changes. 

Peer Hub

We have also secured funding through The National Lottery Community Fund to establish a Peer Hub in this region providing training and support to help people overcome disadvantages, train as Peer Advisors and support others. 

More information on the Peer Hubs is available here.

Work with vulnerable women

We help vulnerable women in Norfolk affected by issues such as domestic abuse, substance misuse, mental health issues and involvement in the criminal justice system through two key projects.

WONDER+, commissioned by Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner, helps women who are experiencing issues such as homelessness, abuse, debt, poverty and other issues.  It works with women in police custody and in the community to help them address underlying needs and help them progress their lives. 

Preventative work with young people at risk of exploitation

Commissioned by Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner, we are working through the SOS+ Service in schools to raise awareness of issues surrounding crime and serious violence. This work equips young people with the knowledge and tools to stay safe and make positive choices. Professionally trained staff with lived experience of the criminal justice system expose the realities and deglamourise some of the myths around getting involved in crime, helping young people stay motivated on a positive path.  It also helps professionals working with young people and parents to raise awareness around signs to look out for amongst young people who could be vulnerable and at risk.

 

Resettlement support for prison leavers

Through our involvement with the Community Rehabilitation Company in this region we are delivering education, training, and employment support in the community helping people with convictions across Norfolk and Suffolk access opportunities. 

We are working through BENCH (Bedfordshire, Northants, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire) Community Rehabilitation Company in HMP Peterborough to offer resettlement support to male and female prisoners. We also offer 'through the gate' resettlement support to men leaving the prison returning to Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.
