Great Yarmouth Community Investment Fund

The Great Yarmouth Community Investment Fund has been made possible by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and other local funders who wish to make a difference in Great Yarmouth.

Grants of up to £10,000 are available to provide funding for voluntary, community and social enterprise sector (VCSE) organisations working in the following four priority areas:
  1. Reducing health inequalities
  2. Supporting educational attainment, skills and aspirations
  3. Tackling exploitation and vulnerability
  4. Reducing loneliness, isolation and social exclusion

All applicants should be working to meet at least one of the priority areas listed above.

The fund is looking to address specific topics within these priority areas, click here for more information. Projects which address these topics will be prioritised for funding.

This funding might be right for you if:

  • You are seeking project costs or continuation costs relating to the ongoing development needs of your organisation 
  • You are working in partnership with other local organisations
  • You are filling a gap in provision in the Borough of Great Yarmouth
  • You are seeking continuation funding for a project previously supported by the Fund that has clearly demonstrated its impact against the Fund’s priorities
  • You are interested in working in partnership with Great Yarmouth Borough Council to demonstrate the impact of your project (practical support will be provided for this from the Great Yarmouth Borough Council team)
  • You can spend your funding within 12 months of receipt

This funding might not be right for you if:

  • You are not a constituted group
  • Your project is a capital (building) project, including kitchen/ toilet and other refurbishments
  • Your services do not operate in the Borough of Great Yarmouth
