Charities, voluntary and community groups, churches, parish/town councils, and social enterprises can apply for funding of up to £5,000 to help the most disadvantaged and vulnerable in Norfolk affected by coronavirus during the coming winter months.
The Norfolk Community Foundation’s Norfolk Winter Resilience Fund will support groups and activities that will help those facing very real challenges as the weather gets colder;
- including the frail and elderly,
- disabled people,
- people with chronic medical conditions,
- and the homeless.
Funding could be used to help reduce isolation, provide food supplies or warm clothing, and help vulnerable people access local services and information.
Areas covered by this fund are Breckland, Broadland, Great Yarmouth, King's Lynn & West Norfolk, North Norfolk, Norwich, and South Norfolk.
Funding must be spent by the 31st March 2021, and can also assist immediate community action where local outbreak restrictions are imposed.
Applications can be accepted on a rolling basis.
The online application form is available on the Norfolk Community Foundation's website (link below)
