Breckland Council Inspiring Communities 2022/23

Breckland Council Inspiring Communities is a match funding scheme providing grants of up to £5,000 for groups working in Breckland District.

The funding is for community projects that can demonstrate that they address identified community needs and align with Breckland Council’s Inspiring Communities outcomes which are:

  • To lead the recovery from COVID-19, supporting all Breckland’s communities;
  • To address vulnerability and work with the most disadvantaged members of our communities to improve their life chances;
  • To enhance the health and wellbeing of Breckland’s residents as part of Norfolk’s Integrated Care System and by providing excellent leisure facilities and activities.

Applicants can apply for a maximum of 50% of the total project cost therefore match funding is required. This can be from your own funds, external funders or in the form of in-kind contributions.
