Community groups in Norwich have got the chance to get their hands on some much-needed cash after the launch of a fund to help them bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic.
The Co-op’s Local Community Fund has raised over £253,000 for local causes in Norwich since 2016 with applications set to open for this year's round.
This year, local groups will be connected to an online community centre called Co-operate where they can benefit from support from like-minded people and causes.
It comes as a survey by Co-op found 76pc of surveyed community causes expect demand for their services to increase over the next six months.
To address this, Co-op is inviting grassroots projects in Norwich that support access to food, help improve mental wellbeing or provide opportunities for young people, to apply for the fund.
