Thriving & Safe Communities

Thriving & Safe Communities


Many charities and community groups play a vital role in creating opportunities for people to come together and feel that they belong to a happy, safe, friendly and inclusive community.

A healthy community feels energetic, and has a mixture of activities and things going on that are suitable for all ages – from Parent and Toddler groups to Over 60’s lunch clubs.

Having a community hub or meeting place, whether it is a pub, community hall or library, means that friendships develop, and neighbours get to know each other.

Newcomers of all cultures are made welcome and the young and the old can come together in friendship. Building a supportive community ensures that when issues arise, such as bad weather or a tragedy, people will naturally come together to help and support each other.

The charities ensuring that we have safe and thriving communities in Suffolk need your financial and practical support to do their work.

Why people support Thriving & Safe Communities

I'm very proud to work in partnership with Suffolk Community Foundation, and to work with them to reach voluntary section organisations that do such an amazing job to make our county a safe place to live.

Tim Passmore

Suffolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner

We are constantly behind desks, behind screens or behind doors or windows but we are human beings and going out to spend quality time with each other face to face is so important. As a trustee, I have been able to meet so many people and experience the issues they face first hand. Suffolk Community Foundation does such a great job in connecting causes that matter with people who care.
