Communities that Care Fund 2017
Each year members select a charity or number of charities to support through our monthly raffle and other events. This year, members voted to continue working in partnership with Norfolk Community Foundation and support ‘Communities that Care’, a new match funding initiative that will fund projects that help people to live in their homes longer and independently as well as supporting and providing respite and activities for carers of all ages to provide a break from their caring responsibilities.
Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund 2016
In 2016, the majority of members voted to continue with a community fund, whereby a number of different projects were supported with a grant of up to £2,000 each , delivered as grants through Norfolk Community Foundation (NCF).
Thanks to the Foundation and their Mental Health & Wellbeing match funding programme, whereby the money raised was matched 2:1, we were able to award grants totalling £13,500 to the following charities and community groups to support projects that are specifically aimed at improving the mental health and wellbeing of local people:
- The Benjamin Foundation
- Headway Norfolk and Waveney
- The Henderson Trust
- Mancroft Advice Project
- Norfolk Community Law Service
- Norwich Family Contact Centre
- The Garage
