Funding Plus


Offering more than funding to help Norfolk’s charities shine brighter

We know that access to grant funding will always be vital, but we also recognise that there are other ways that we, and our network of donors, supporters and partners, can help community organisations thrive and grow.

Many of the people we work with are able to commit their time and expertise to help Norfolk charities do more, offering free access to a range of professional skills that may otherwise be out of reach.

Funding Plus is our programme of free information, advice and resources that adds value to our funding, and help charities access the help they need to overcome organisational challenges, build networks and plan for the future. Through our partnership with Norfolk ProHelp and wider cross sector relationships, we can ensure Norfolk charities have access to a comprehensive learning and development programme.

We are developing a programme of webinars and online workshops focused on the issues we know matter to local voluntary groups and charities – you will find our recent sessions published here, plus news of forthcoming events and how you can get involved.

We’re so much more than just a funder…

At Norfolk Community Foundation, we’re committed to Norfolk communities. Whether you’re a trustee looking to develop your charity, a worker in a voluntary organisation that needs some advice, or a person looking for help and advice when looking for work, we’ve created and curated content from Norfolk’s top businesses and organisations to boost your opportunities.

Our online seminar programme is built with Norfolk in mind, providing local charities and community groups with guidance and advice on issues including the role of trustees, staff wellbeing and accounting, to giving updates on our work and opportunities to hear from inspirational speakers.


Our 1-to-1s offer Norfolk VCSEs the change to speak to leading charities and businesses on a peer to peer basis, providing local community groups with guidance and advice on issues that affect their work. Once a month, we also offer the chance to speak to the Programmes Team about.

Be Ready 2…

It can be hard to know what to expect from a job interview. You might never have attended one before, or not had one for some time. To help give people trying to access work a helping hand, we asked employers across Norfolk for their top tips and advice. Below are a series of short interviews with local employers, talking to Philanthropy Advisor, Lauren, about how you can prepare for the big day.
