Freebridge announce launch of annual community fund

04/04/18

The application process for the 2018 Freebridge Community Fund opens from Monday 9 April, with £5000 once again on offer to local community groups and charities.

The annual fund gives groups the opportunity to apply for grants of up to £1000 to support a community and voluntary activity that meets the needs of the community within West Norfolk.

Applications are welcome from organisations whose aims include:

- Promoting health and wellbeing;

- Tackling disadvantage;

- Supporting local solutions to local needs;

- Promoting community cohesion;

- Developing sustainable and supportive communities, and

- Improving the environment

The allocation of monies available is made by a panel made up of Freebridge employees and tenants, last year £5000 was shared between Solace End of Life Support, West Norfolk Mind, West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled Association, The South West Norfolk Youth Opportunities Project, West Norfolk Befriending, the Purfleet Trust and 4transform.

Freebridge Director of Housing, Robert Clarke, said: "Although our main role is to provide good quality affordable housing for people across the area, we feel strongly that we have a responsibility to play a role in supporting stronger, vibrant communities in West Norfolk.

"The Freebridge Community Fund provides to organisations on a very local level which we feel fills a need not met by either public funding or more major charities."

The application process is open from Monday 9 April until Friday 9 June. Applications can be made by visiting The Norfolk Foundation website.
