Funding & Support
How we can help you make great things happen in your community
We offer a range of funding and support opportunities for voluntary groups and charities doing great work across Norfolk. We aim to invest in genuinely good ideas led by local people that make a real difference in our communities.
We award grants through a range of different Funds in partnership with local philanthropists who want to make a difference in their local community. Our partners may be individuals, families, businesses, charitable trusts or other organisations who believe that our local charities and voluntary groups have a vital role to play in improving quality of life and increasing opportunities for Norfolk people.
Many of our partners are able to offer time and expertise as well as funding, so while grants are vital, we can also help in other ways – for example through training, links to free professional skills and our online community help hub.
Who can apply
We mainly offer funding and support for constituted voluntary and community groups and charities, and also offer a limited number of opportunities for individuals. Our Funds each have specific criteria and priorities, but all aim to meet need and address disadvantage in our communities.
You can see detailed eligibility criteria in the Guidance & Resources section of our website, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for each stage of the application process. Each of our Funds will have a specific webpage for information, and in most cases a link to apply online. Opportunities will vary throughout the year, and our team will be happy to discuss your plans at any stage.
