DCMS Know Your Neighbourhood Fund Years 2 & 3
The Know Your Neighbourhood Fund, funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport will provide grants for projects that will result in reduced loneliness and increased volunteering in the Borough of Great Yarmouth. The Programme will run across two years to March 2025.
The Programme has four key objectives:
- To build the evidence to identify scalable and sustainable place-based interventions that work in increasing regular volunteering and reducing chronic loneliness.
- To increase the proportion of people in the Borough of Great Yarmouth who volunteer at least once a month.
- To reduce the proportion of chronically lonely people in the Borough of Great Yarmouth who lack the desired level of social connections.
- To enable the local voluntary and community sector in the Borough of Great Yarmouth, to implement sustainable systems and processes that encourage volunteering and tackling loneliness.
The Know Your Neighbourhood Fund is fundamentally about learning. This means that the evaluation aspect of the funding is key. Any group applying for funding must be aware that a key objective of the fund is building the evidence base around the above DCMS objectives.
