PACT Trust Fund
Now open – there are no application deadlines. Applications are considered on a rolling basis while funds remain available.
The aim of the PACT Trust Fund is to support charitable organisations in Norfolk who are delivering projects to address:
- The protection of vulnerable people from crime
- The prevention of repeat victimisation
- Keeping young people out of the criminal justice system
Grants of up to £2,000 are available. The Fund has around £4,000 available and will close once sufficient applications have been received.
Who can apply
Charitable, community and voluntary groups based or clearly operating in Norfolk can apply. This includes Churches/ PCCs and Parish Councils where the project is clearly community focused and inclusive.
Please refer to our FAQs for specific guidance on the types of organisation/ project that are eligible to apply. Please note the specific guidance in the FAQs for Social Enterprises/ CICs.
Schools are not eligible to apply.
When to apply
Grants are normally made in one annual funding round – the next deadline will be published here when the fund is open.
How to apply
Norfolk Community Foundation has launched a new way to apply online, which enables applicants to complete more of the process entirely online if they wish. If you have any problems at all using the new system please contact the Grants Team for support.
If you are using an old version of eg. Internet Explorer you may find it helpful to download a copy of Google Chrome to ensure you have the best experience – this browser is free to download here http://www.google.com/chrome/
Independent reference: Please note: we no longer require applicants to provide an independent reference with every application. Instead you will be asked to provide contact details for a referee within the online application form and we will contact the referee where we feel this will be helpful. Please see our FAQs for guidance on choosing an independent referee.
Making an online application:
Step 1 – Complete the online application form by clicking on the link below. The new form enables you to upload various pieces of supporting information to complete your application. You can still send some or all of your supporting information separately by email or by post if you wish.
Step 2 – Ensure that Norfolk Community Foundation receives your online form, and all supporting information, by the deadline date.
