Partnering business with charities
Norfolk ProHelp is a network of professional firms committed to making a difference in their local community by providing free advice and support to the voluntary and not-for-profit sector.
ProHelp enables voluntary and community groups in Norfolk with the greatest need to access professional support which they could otherwise not afford, meaning they can focus their resources on supporting people in need of their services. From marketing, IT, surveying and valuation to boiler maintenance, event photography and more, we link up local businesses who want to give back with charities making a difference.
Free professional skills available
Member businesses commit their time to provide a one-stop-shop for the voluntary sector to access free professional skills and expertise in a range of services.
Norfolk ProHelp can offer support one-to-one if you have a particular challenge to overcome, as well as group information and training sessions covering key issues affecting charities such as trusteeship, preparing budgets and annual accounts, and staff wellbeing.
Part of the Empowering Communities Partnership, funded by Norfolk County Council, Norfolk ProHelp has not only matched up businesses with charities in need, but provided vital training and support to strengthen and upskill Norfolk’s charities and community groups. From ‘ask us’ sessions providing one-to-one support with an expert on topics including marketing, fundraising and HR, to webinars and workshops on avoiding discrimination in the workplace, legacy giving and 10 top tips for your charity website, we always aim to secure the support charities tell us they need.
