Thetford Shines Brighter – Case Studies
Local funds for local projects
Thetford Shines Brighter is a different way of funding. Thetford people have come together to create a pot of money to help great community projects get off the ground and start changing local lives. This highly localised model gets the funding to where it is needed through community consultation and tight monitoring. By funding from grassroots sources at a grassroots level, Thetford people can deliver unparalleled community benefit by prioritising the projects that are really important to them.
“Through extensive research within the town and a survey of 100 local residents we have assembled a framework to start to build a strong thriving community that looks after the most vulnerable.”
Claire Cullens, CEO Norfolk Community Foundation
