Norwich Consolidated Charities is actually one single charity and is one of the 4 Registered Charities in the Norwich Charitable Trusts group of Charities. The Charity makes grants to individuals and to other charities for exceptional items or payments where this will provide significant relief to the applicant or dependants.
The Charity was formed by consolidating a large number of individual charities which had existed in the City of Norwich since at least the 16th century. These had become too small to be effective on their own and their original purpose was no longer relevant as the social and economic life of the City evolved. The end of the process was as recent as 2002 when the remaining 127 funds were combined.
