Freebridge Community Housing is committed to “developing homes and creating opportunities in West Norfolk”. In addition the organisation is dedicated to working with local partners to address wider social issues such as community development, tenant empowerment and tackling anti-social behaviour.
The Fund offers small grants of up to £1,000 to support community and voluntary activity that addresses the needs of communities within West Norfolk, and which supports community self-help. Priority will be given to projects that impact on the Association’s tenants within this area.
A total of £10,000 is available this year for grant making, to celebrate the fact that the fund has been running for 10 years.
The Fund will support a wide range of charities and community organisations, with the aim of:
- Promoting health and wellbeing
• Tackling disadvantage
• Supporting local solutions to local needs
• Promoting community cohesion
• Developing sustainable and supportive communities
• Improving the environment for Freebridge’s tenants
Grant decisions will be made by a panel made up of Freebridge staff and tenants, who will look to help a wide range of community issues and initiatives. These may include expenses such as capital costs, venue hire, equipment, promotional costs, start-up expenses and training, for example.
