Compassion in Crisis
Anyone can find themselves facing a critical situation where they will need help quickly.
Charities and community groups play an essential role in helping people by giving on-going support to those who need it in a crisis – preventing an initial situation from creating a downward spiral of problems.
Supporting people in times of bereavement, unemployment,
ill health (whether mental or physical), addiction, abuse, debt, homelessness, displacement or if they’ve become a victim of crime. These are just some of the acute personal issues that our voluntary sector supports.
The charities supporting people in crisis in Suffolk need your financial and practical support to do their work.

Why people support Compassion in Crisis
Our fund recently supported creative writing sessions for women who have experienced domestic abuse. This then became a play which was extraordinary. On the night, one of the women described it as being 'better than therapy', and that's exactly what the arts can do. There were many people in the audience who were greatly moved - it was a ground-breaking piece of work.
Since becoming a member of the grant's panel of a private fund, I have been stunned by levels of deprivation in parts of Suffolk, particularly in Haverhill - where we have been delighted to support the work of REACH Community Projects.
