Lumi aims to simply shine a light on all these great things happening in our communities. Unlock access to the amazing skills in Norwich and give you the chance to connect share and get involved.

Sitting behind Lumi is Norwich City Council, maintaining the site to make sharing information and stuff possible. We’re keen that Lumi belongs to the City and the site works for you, after all everything you see on this site is run by the Norwich community. So if there is a way that we can improve what it does drop us an email on lumi@norwich.gov.uk and let us know.
