Access Community Trust

From humble beginnings as a homeless night shelter in Lowestoft, Access Community Trust has grown significantly in scale and reach for nearly half a century.

Today, the charity champions homelessness support across East Anglia, alongside providing a range of mental health and wellbeing assistance that helps vulnerable individuals of all ages, families, and, wider communities that find themselves socially isolated.

Help us raise £10,000 for our local community services & support.

Access Community Trust is hosting a fundraiser to educate our community about the services we provide and our foundational Family Support Principles.

We will highlight voices and stories from community members impacted by The Gainlove Global aid network. We will also have a keynote speaker discussing social and racial equity and its impact on individuals and community outcomes. Our keynote speaker will be providing a deeper dive on the discussion of racial equity with a series that will follow our event in the winter of 2020.
