Lord Baker Community Fund

*Currently closed for applications*

Grants of up to £1,000 are available to support smaller community groups and charities in Norfolk who are doing great work to help local people, particularly those who face disadvantage. 

The Fund aims to support capital costs only (for example, equipment or resources) to help deliver community projects, and priority is given to applications where a grant of up to £1,000 will cover the majority of the cost.

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 request relates to activities/ projects that are 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
Deadlines will be published here when the Fund is open.
