Norfolk Winter Resilience Fund
Covid-19 continues to present challenges for local charities and voluntary groups as they struggle to meet the needs of the vulnerable people they help. As the impacts of the pandemic continue to unfold, many more people may face particular hardship over the winter months due to health, low income or isolation.
The Norfolk Winter Resilience Fund can support, for example, activities that help to reduce isolation for older and vulnerable people, provide food supplies, a hot meal or warm clothing, or help vulnerable people to access local services and information that may prevent a crisis situation arising.
This funding can also assist community action where a local outbreak of Covid-19 is identified and restrictions imposed, where urgent help is needed to support those at risk and/ or self-isolating.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available for activity taking place during the winter months - larger grants may be considered. Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis while the Fund is open, and must be spent in full by 31 March 2021.
