Community groups from across the county are being invited to apply for funding through the Norfolk Community Foundation.

The Foundation manages a variety of grant funding schemes throughout the year and now there will be even more help on offer, wih grants and assistance for hard-to-reach groups.

Grants officer Slava Puttock said: “Here at the Foundation we're really keen to make sure we are reaching the groups who will benefit most from help.

“Sometimes that can mean just being at the end of the phone if someone hasn't gone through the process before and doesn't know where to start.

“It could mean going to visit their project to find out a bit more about what they need or even going along to meetings in some areas to let people know a little more about the work of the Foundation.”

The Foundation currently has several funding streams open welcoming applications including The Love Norfolk Fund, which was set up to help community groups, small charities and projects carrying out valuable work right in the heart of the community.

To find out how your community group can benefit or to ask for a visit or call from a grants advisor, call 01603 623958 or email info@norfolkfoundation.com
