All Hallows Healthcare Trust provides a seamless service of integrated health and social care for local people across north Suffolk and south Norfolk providing facilities and services of the highest quality and best value. There are few parts of the country where such a service as that provided from All Hallows is available. Services ranging from in-patient, out-patient and community care include intermediate care, rehabilitation, respite, convalescence, end of life care, daycare, homecare, residential and nursing home care through to a range of therapy and neurological services.

With an atmosphere that is welcoming and friendly with well-trained staff supported by volunteers and supported by our community, we are able to meet the health and social care needs of each individual. We work to ensure patients, residents and clients are given high quality care, adopting a holistic and personalised care approach. We know each person is unique and strive to maintain a transparent and open culture where everyone feels safe and able to share any issues. We are committed to delivering the best possible outcomes for all our patients, residents and clients: we want them to live their lives to their fullest potential through the delivery of high class care. On average every week we see and look after over 300 individuals, all of whom benefit from this approach.

Gatehouse is a Registered Charity that for over 30 years has been supporting vulnerable people in West Suffolk from our Centre in Bury St. Edmunds which is owned by the Charity. We currently run day services for people with dementia and their family carers in addition to a furniture re use store, supplying good quality second hand items to those most vulnerable as well as raising funds for the charity through sales. We run the town’s food bank and we have a project that supplies food hampers during December and also provides a full Christmas Lunch on December 25th, this is run completely by volunteers.

We are always looking at how to meet the needs of local people and we aim to become the Dementia Hub for West Suffolk. 590 people in the Bury St Edmunds have dementia and the impact on their family, carers, relatives and friends means that the true number of people living with the consequences of this condition is much greater.

Headway Suffolk’s aims are to provide rehabilitation, and care for adults with a neurological condition and to offer their families respite, support and advice. A neurological condition can mean people have memory loss, mobility, communication and cognitive problems as well as a changed personality. The services offered assist in recovery and rehabilitation. These services include day rehabilitation in our hubs, clinical therapy, community support, home care, companion dog scheme, and nursing care. We offer a 24 7 bespoke service. We help over 250 people and their families every week. We take one man fishing at 2 a.m. in the morning as this is when he wants his rehab. Our activities in the hubs include, art, crafts, and ladies group’s men’s groups, Nordic walking, dance, exercise to music, gym, swimming, basic skills, cooking, history and maths groups.

Our Brainy dog scheme takes rescue dogs to be trained by prisoners from the local prison. The dogs then become companions to our clients or help with the rehab, motivating people to go for walks and mixing with the community. We employ physiotherapist, occupational therapist and speech and language therapists. Our counsellors have prevented people committing suicide, helped them to understand their different life and role and kept families together. Our work saves lives and helps people to rebuild their life after injury or disease.

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society. Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and: enjoy what they are doing and have fun; take part in activities indoors and outdoors; learn by doing; share in spiritual reflection; take responsibility and make choices; undertake new and challenging activities and make and live by their Promise.

There are significant inclusion issues across Suffolk County due to geography and the difficulties due to its rural nature, as well as significant pockets of deprivation in some of our large towns and along the coast. This means that young people in many areas do not have access to Scouting. No child will be excluded on financial grounds. Subscriptions can be covered without drawing attention to family circumstances. We hope to provide opportunities to approach schools and local authorities during the day and developers of new housing to encourage them to provide community space within their new build projects.

Macmillan is the UK’s leading cancer care charity. Our ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer, from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond, regardless of the type of cancer they have or their prognosis.

Every year, more than 4,000 people in Suffolk are diagnosed with cancer and by 2030, the total number of people living with or beyond cancer in Suffolk is set to exceed 56,000

Across Suffolk, over 80 Macmillan Professionals work across a range of service to provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support to people living with cancer. Macmillan also provides vital information and support to the local communities through our Mobile Information and Support Service, which spent 15 days in Suffolk last year, reaching over 800 local people. We also provide financial support to those who are struggling to cope with the cost of cancer, through our Macmillan Grants Programme. Last year we gave grants, totalling over £87,000 to local people across Suffolk in financial hardship.

Suffolk Macmillan Cancer Support Centre in Ipswich provides cancer patients and their loved ones with the best possible care and support throughout their treatment, with expert support and guidance from Macmillan nurses, healthcare professionals and support staff.

The Shelley Centre is a purpose built self funding independent charity affiliated to the Riding for the Disabled Association. Situated in the Brett Valley near Hadleigh, Suffolk, we provide horse riding therapy to benefit the health and well being of children and adults with disabilities from the surrounding districts. The Centre is run by a full time Stable Manager and 90 Volunteers, including the Trustees and Management Committee. Our 10 horses and ponies add a new dimension to the lives of our 139 special riders who attend each week. Riding strengthens muscles, improving balance and posture for those with varying degrees of physical disabilities. In addition, riding encourages sensory, social and communication skills. Independence, decision making and self esteem are promoted whilst achieving goals and having fun.

Our impact on the local community is mutually beneficial. Supporters, volunteers, parents and carers all treasure their contact with the group, seeing improvements, sharing experiences and doing something worthwhile. The riders come from special schools, resource units, day centres and with referral from Health professionals. We are involved with the local community: we have a presence at the Hadleigh Show, hold a carol service in Shelley Church and invite guests to our Annual Shelley Show. We regularly give talks to schools, clubs, women’ groups etc. and encourage them to be involved with and to visit the Centre.
