Faith groups, charities and local stakeholders are to meet in Norwich next week to examine the major issues facing our communities.

The conference on social justice is being held at the King's Centre, on King's Street, and features various speakers including the bishop of East Anglia and Norwich City Council leader Alan Waters.

Representatives from eight local organisations will give talks on the challenges people face who are experiencing social deprivation.
