East Anglian Mixed Martial Arts Academy was developed out of a desire to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Since its inception, we have worked hard to provide support where it's most needed.
Grand Master Lee Wall 7th Dan, has over 35 years experience in the Martial Arts, has taught in many styles of Martial Arts, but their main style of Martial Art is "Wal-Ryu Karate-Do" (The Wall School Of Empty Hand). Master Lee has always believed in passing on knowledge to those in need, and for this reason the East Anglian Mixed Martial Arts Academy become a registered charity, that will continue to supply affordable Martial Arts tuition to his community.
Being a charity organisation means, every penny and fees raised stays within the academy and helps our organisation become the leading supplier of affordable Martial Arts and fitness provider.
We're always happy to welcome new volunteers who would like to dedicate some of their time to the charity. If you'd like to lend a hand or open a class of your own, please don't hesitate to contact us, new willing members are always welcome.
New research from the University of Cambridge commissioned by The Suffolk Foundation has highlighted that some areas of Suffolk are as much in need of local and national funding support as some of the most deprived communities in the UK.
The “Hidden Needs” report has been commissioned by The Suffolk Foundation to understand the scale and nature of social deprivation in Suffolk – to highlight why local giving is needed to strengthen local communities, to inform the Foundation’s community grant-making and to demonstrate to national funding bodies that some areas of Suffolk do experience high levels of social disadvantage despite a perception of the county as affluent and comfortable.
“As a community grant-maker, the independent nature of this research is important to us as we seek to understand better the scale and nature of social needs in Suffolk,” says Stephen Singleton, Chief Executive of The Suffolk Foundation. “The report confirms that many of the needs in the County are hidden: statistics have often shown us to be a county of averages and yet we know that there is a lot of real wealth in the county – this report confirms that those averages are masking real deprivation and disadvantage in some of our communities too.”
Although the findings will be very familiar to those already working in the voluntary and statutory sectors, the scale of need may surprise many and it is hoped that the report will influence those outside the county who perhaps underestimate the extend of social need in Suffolk. Suffolk charities report that they are often overlooked for national funding programmes because of the misconception that Suffolk “has no real need” so it is hoped the report will support the voluntary and statutory sectors ensure that the county can attract its fair share of funding opportunities.
Keith Whitton, Director of Operations at Anglia Care Trust, has warmly welcomed the report, saying, “This is exactly what we have been waiting for – an independent, clear evidence-base that will strengthen our funding bids when seeking national funding to support Suffolk’s most vulnerable communities. The story of Suffolk’s needs is indeed one of “hidden need” and this report will be invaluable to all of us in the voluntary sector who are trying to make the case for support for local causes.”
Key findings of the report include:
The report has been warmly welcomed by Suffolk County Council as an independent contribution to the County’s collective knowledge and understanding of social needs. Jane Storey, Suffolk County Council’s Acting Leader, said: “Suffolk County Council welcomes this report because it provides an independent perspective on the social needs of Suffolk. Any research that sheds real light on the support our local communities need is only ever going to benefit Suffolk.
“We agree with the Foundation that external funders often overlook Suffolk as an area with complex social needs, so I very much hope this will help put Suffolk on the map in terms of national funding opportunities. The report confirms that there’s a wealth of opportunities for businesses and social enterprises to make a contribution in Suffolk, and therefore supports our efforts to bring more funding into the county. The county council works very closely with the Suffolk Foundation and values their work in helping to create thriving communities supported by voluntary and community activity to tackle the issues we face.”
Stephen Singleton says, “The Cambridge report is entitled “Hidden Needs” because that is exactly how we would define the needs of Suffolk – the deprivation is often camouflaged by neighbouring affluence but it cannot be ignored. We all have a responsibility to deepen our understanding and work together constructively to build a stronger Suffolk, and for that, we need the support of our donors more than ever.”
