Freebridge Community Fund opens for applications

Freebridge Community Housing

Freebridge is once again inviting applications to their Community Fund, with £5000 being made available to local community groups and charities.

The housing provider’s annual fund gives local groups the opportunity to apply for grants of up to £1000 to support community and voluntary activities that meet the needs of the community within West Norfolk. 

Applications are welcome from groups 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.

Last year among the successful applicants to the £5000 fund were 4 Transform, Age UK Norfolk, the Hanseatic Union, the King’s Lynn Men’s Shed, Sing Your Heart Out, South West Norfolk Youth Opportunities Project and The Garage Trust Ltd. The allocation of the money available is decided by a panel made up of Freebridge employees and members from their Tenant Panel.

Freebridge Director of Housing, Robert Clarke, said: “Freebridge is committed to supporting community groups and the work they do across our region and through our fund we can provide financial help to projects and initiatives that are making a real difference to people’s lives and helping to support a better West Norfolk.”

Norfolk Community Foundation manages the fund on Freebridge’s behalf. Any community or voluntary group wishing to apply, or just find out more about the Freebridge Community Fund can visit http://www.norfolkfoundation.com/Freebridge-Community-Housing-Fund.html or telephone 01603 623958 or email jennybevan@norfolkfoundation.com.
