Norwich Integration Partnership
In 2015, three Norwich based charities came together to form the Norwich Integration Partnership. English+, New Routes and The Bridge Plus+ began working more closely together in order to improve service provision for people from ethnic minority communities, particularly those who are recently settled and dealing with complex issues. These communities are often isolated and marginalised, facing many barriers to integrating into and enjoying life in Norwich. Together, the NIP partners seek to address the disadvantages and challenges faced by these communities, to raise awareness of their struggles and to celebrate the contribution of new communities to Norwich.
Services offered by NIP include information, advice and advocacy, language development and integration activities, personalised one-to-one support and skills development opportunities.
The Norwich Integration Partnership was honoured to be chosen as the 2017-18 Civic Charity. We were selected by the Lord Mayor and Sheriff in recognition of the work we do in supporting Norwich’s new communities, enabling their engagement as informed and welcomed citizens.
