North Norfolk Writer’s Group – mutual support through creative writing

Our CANConnect project helps people in North Norfolk link with activities and like-minded people in their community, as well as providing support to help them identify and achieve their goals. We've been working closely with North Norfolk Writers' Group.

"We are a town united" - how one community has responded to the Coronavirus

At CAN we’ve seen the spectrum of community groups forming in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, seeking to help their vulnerable and isolated residents. We have, and are, helping many of them with safeguarding, insurance and legal advice and volunteer management, under the auspices of our existing Good Neighbour scheme network.

There are some inspiring examples of communities coming together during the Coronavirus pandemic, and one south Norfolk town has shown how it can be done.
