About The Purfleet Trust

The Purfleet Trust is a charity that supports people experiencing homelessness in King’s Lynn and West Norfolk. We believe that everyone has the right to live in a decent, suitable and affordable home and should have access to services that support and enable them to live independently.
From our Health and Wellbeing Centre at Austin Fields, people experiencing homelessness can access wellbeing services, housing advice, skills workshops and more. The Centre is also home to our clinical practice with regular visits from a nurse and a Podiatrist, as well as a hairdresser for our clients to use.
We have supported living Training Houses across King's Lynn that manage to help our clients learn how to be a valued member of the community and maintain sustainable independent tenancies.
The Purfleet Pantry social supermarket on Southgates Roundabout is a shop offering affordable food, essentials and furniture to the wider public in South Lynn and beyond to help tackle the Cost of Living Crisis in our area. This also acts as a signposting service for our other services such as housing support and benefits advice.
