About Us

'A society free from poverty and isolation where people are able to thrive' (TNT vision)

Our Mission Statement

'TNT builds relationships with churches across Nottinghamshire and inspires, equips and connects them as they help people break free from poverty and isolation arising from injustice and inequality.'

We achieve this by:

  • Inspiring churches to engage with communities by bringing to life how injustice and inequality impacts on people.
  • Equipping and partnering with churches, enhancing and developing their skills and resources so they can make a greater difference locally.
  • Connecting churches and Christian organisations by coordinating networks and promoting wider collaborative working.

Transforming Notts Together is part of the Together Network – local partnerships between CUF and 19 Church of England Dioceses – which promotes collaborative, local social action through network building, strengthening of relationships, sharing of best practice and the development and delivery of programmes to tackle social issues including food poverty, loneliness and homelessness.
