About the funding available to charities and voluntary and community groups for revenue expenditure or capital projects
About our funding
Currently we hold a small amount of funding to distribute towards either revenue expenditure or capital projects.
Revenue expenditure covers an organisation's general running costs, for example:
- venue hire
- printing and stationery
Capital funding covers items such as:
- pieces of equipment
- refurbishment of a building
- provision of a children's play area
The funding is available to charities, voluntary and community groups, community interest companies and social enterprises. You must meet at least one of these criteria:
- improved understanding of different people and cultures in our local community - for example, projects that bring together different cultures or generations
- increased involvement from people who face barriers to participation in community life - for example, integrated sports activities for disabled and non-disabled people, school holiday activities for families on a low income
- greater use of community buildings or outdoor community spaces particularly in rural areas - for example, refurbishing buildings to support new activities, wildlife/community gardens, environmental improvements
- healthier and safer lifestyles for the whole community - for example, walking and cycling projects and well-being classes.
- increased participation in arts and cultural activities which are accessible to the whole community - for example, developing music skills, taster sessions to introduce people to the arts

You can apply for a grant through the Norfolk Community Foundation (NCF) website. It's an organisation that can help with funding and applying for grants.
What happens next
Once your application has been submitted, it will be checked by the NCF. They will contact you if anything is missing. If it passes the initial checks, it's passed to us to make a decision.
Once a decision has been made, the NCF will contact you to let you know the outcome. You'll usually hear within 8 weeks of the NCF grant application deadline.
