Supporting Ukraine in Norfolk Fund

The Supporting Ukraine in Norfolk Fund has been created to support the needs of Ukrainian refugees arriving and settling in Norfolk. For those charitable groups well placed to take action through local initiatives, this funding aims to help them to provide the much-needed care, practical and emotional support for Ukrainian refugees, their families and hosts. 

Grants of up to £10,000 are available for established organisations with a track record of delivering activities or services that benefit refugees in your community.

About the fund

This grant might be right for you if:

  • You have seen an increase in demand on your existing activities or you wish to extend your activities as a result of the arrival and settlement of Ukrainian refugees in Norfolk.
  • You are an established organisation with a track record of delivering activities or services that benefit the refugee community.
  • You are seeking to fund project costs or core costs related to services supporting the refugee community.

There is currently around £50,000 available to support charities and community groups through the Fund as a result of the Supporting Ukraine in Norfolk fundraising campaign and its generous donors. Future grant opportunities are subject to the availability of further funding.

Who can apply

Funding will be available to registered charities, constituted voluntary and community organisations, taking an active role to respond to emerging needs in our communities.  

Who can you help

Your organisation must be responding to a need identified to support the refugee community as a result of the arrival and settlement of Ukrainian refugees in Norfolk.


We cannot accept applications from individuals, businesses, public/private health services, Parish/Town councils, schools or other statutory bodies. Grants cannot be used to support household bills, food provision or direct payment of cash to individuals.
