Community Hot-Spot Fund
Due to further funds becoming available, we are now able to reopen the Community Hot-Spot Fund for another round.
Each year, we support Norfolk charities to provide vital services for people living in our county, combatting isolation and loneliness and improving people’s wellbeing during the colder months. This year, our winter funding is focusing on organisations that are, or are looking to, provide what we are calling a Community Hot-Spot. A Community Hot-Spot is a warm space for people to take a break from the cold and connect with others over the winter months.
Grants of £2,000 are available to contribute towards the cost of running or establishing a Community Hot-Spot that gives a warm welcome to the whole community, in particular reaching those who are vulnerable or have been impacted by the cost-of-living crisis.
In your application, please tell us about your idea for a Community Hot-Spot. As well providing warmth, this space should bring the community together. This can be anything from providing a cup of tea and a warm welcome, to enabling access to wider support services. All ideas are welcome!
