Supporting Communities – Improving Lives
Anglia Care Trust was established in 1968 and is a charity dedicated to supporting vulnerable people within the community. We specialise in preventative, community based services, giving people the stability, support and challenge which is often required in order to enable them to realise their full potential. We deliver a range of projects promoting the well being of children, young people, adults and families alike.
Our activities, both charitable and publicly funded are delivered within three broad headings:
With our headquarters in Ipswich, we deliver services across Suffolk and into Norfolk, with satellite offices across the region. We offer a spectrum of flexible and interconnected support services, ranging from longer term Intensive Support, through to a series of bespoke services, tailor made to meet Service Users’ needs, such as short term Money Advice.
We have a large team of nearly 100 volunteers who we are very proud of: their level of specialist training as well as their commitment is outstanding and we appreciate their dedication – we could not successfully deliver some of our services without them.
We are an Investors in People Bronze Standard organisation and hold Investors in Diversity Award at Level 2. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults and young people, an equal opportunities employer which values diversity and expect all our staff and volunteers to share these commitments.
In delivering our strategic objectives, Anglia Care Trust seeks to bring about positive changes in our operating environment. To assist us influence such change, we work collaboratively with other agencies and are an active member of the Suffolk Congress. The Suffolk Congress is a collaborative network which is open to all voluntary and community sector groups in Suffolk. It enables communication, challenge and action. The Congress is committed to working alongside statutory agencies and other stakeholders, in a partnership of equals, to provide practical solutions to enhance the lives of the people of Suffolk. The Congress believes that by speaking collectively our voice will be heard.
