The Birketts Fund is focused on providing support to a wide range of voluntary and community groups in Norfolk, particularly those that do not always have access to government or other large scale charitable funding and whose primary aim is to improve the quality of people’s lives.
The main aims of the grant programme are to:
- Support local solutions to meet local needs
- Promote community cohesion
- Develop sustainable and supportive communities
- Tackle disadvantage
- Promote health and well-being
Grants of between £250 and £2,000 are awarded by a committee comprising a cross-section of staff and partners of the firm. For the 2015 round of grant making there is a funding pot of around £17,000 available.
