About us

Acts Trust is a Lincoln-based charity founded by Alive Church in 2006,

with the aspirational goal of poverty elimination in the City.

Acts is community-led, existing to inspire and empower local residents to both recognise and find solutions to community problems. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live as a valued member of a positive and flourishing community and as such we exist to help nurture both individual and community development.

We do this through our two flagship projects: Energize and Restore

Energize works with young people aged 11+ providing positive activities across the city to boost self-esteem and raise the aspirations of young people. They do this in partnership with local schools and community groups as well as delivering holiday schemes across the estates.

Restore works with people aged 16+ supporting them into a life free from poverty. We support through tangible aid such as food, clothing and furniture but we also provide advice and guidance (such as debt advice) - all done relationally through mentoring and befriending.
