Time Running out for Applications to £15,000 Community Fund

Community projects have until 27th September 2019 to apply to the Victory Housing Trust Community Fund.


Community projects have just days left to apply for a share of £15k in funding.

The investment, which has been made available through the Victory Housing Trust Community Fund, is inviting applications of up to £5k until 27th September.

The fund was set up in 2008 to improve people’s lives in the local communities where Victory operates, which is mainly in north Norfolk. Since then more than £500,000 has been given out in 174 grants to charities, community and voluntary groups, parish and town councils and not for profit groups.

Key is that applications must involve or have the potential to involve Victory residents.  The funding can be used to meet different needs such as for capital projects, venue hire, equipment, start-up expenses, and training across themes such as health and wellbeing, promoting community cohesion and tackling disadvantage.

Applications will be assessed by a panel of Victory residents supported by Norfolk Community Foundation which administers the fund on Victory’s behalf.

Lisa Collen, Interim Managing Director of Victory Housing Trust explained: “This is a great opportunity for community projects to benefit from funding which could help them to achieve their goals.

“The fund has made a big difference over the last decade, with many great causes receiving investment. We are looking forward to supporting even more activities through this latest round of funding.”

Applications for grants can be made by any organisation or group established for charitable purposes, provided there is a formal structure which allows for monitoring of activity and feedback – official charitable status is not necessary.

Anyone wishing to find out more and apply can do so by 27th September via the Norfolk Community Foundation website: https://www.norfolkfoundation.com/funding-support/grants/groups/victory-housing-trust-community-fund/
