Love Every Drop

CAN has had a long association with Anglian Water, taking their message out into the community and raising awareness of the importance of a commodity that none of us can afford to take for granted any longer. 

You may ask why we do this, and the answer is simple. We are all about community, and our ethos is about working to achieve the best outcomes for the people who live and work in communities across Norfolk.

We all, without exception, use and depend on the easy availability of water but the stark reality is that we need to use less of it!

The Charity Commission’s Charities Act 2022; latest updates.

Charities are a force for good and millions regularly donate to help them help others. However, there were issues within the law within in which charities operate, meaning that time and money were spent on administration when it could be used for charitable causes.

As a result the Law Commission started investigating some of these technical issues in charity law. The majority of the recommendations in their 2017 Technical Issues in Charity Law report were accepted by Government and enacted in the Charities Act 2022.

We are all acutely aware of the pressures the NHS are under and very occasionally something goes wrong and needs resolving.

Overcoming Life's Challenges

For most of us wellbeing is about feeling good about ourselves, getting the most out of our lives and feeling connected to other people. 

For many, this does not come without its challenges and for some, there are hurdles to overcome. As a whole, we are survivors. We somehow manage to prosper in spite of opposition, hardship, and setbacks but for those who need help, there is a network of people who can lead you on your path to recovery.

Community Action Norfolk is sharing this information provided by ACRE.

Jeremy Leggett, ACRE’s Policy Advisor, blogs on how many off gas grid households have been left in the cold by the government’s energy support schemes.

Imagine a gender equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

We can all challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and seek out inclusive practices. We can do this by sharing the passion and excitement that comes from valuing and supporting difference and taking time to reflect on how we can all be part of the solution, not the problem.
