£19,000 Windfall for Seven North Norfolk Community Organisations

Seven community groups across north Norfolk are celebrating a combined £19,000 windfall, following the latest round of grants from the Victory Housing Community Fund.

A talking newspaper, a community law service, a village play area and a charity which helps people build confidence through singing are among the organisations sharing grants ranging from £1,500 to £4,998 – bringing the total handed out by the Fund to £387,383 across 141 grants since it was established in 2008.

The latest round of grants were awarded by a panel of Victory residents, advised by the grants team at Norfolk Community Foundation, which administers the Victory Housing Community Fund.

  • EP Youth, which received £4,998 to tackle rural isolation by providing a free inclusive project for young people aged between 11-18 serving Briston, Melton Constable and Hindolveston.
  • Merchants Place in Cromer, which received £3,000 to run ‘Yes We Can’, a new community learning and social support project designed to meet the needs of local adults with a range of additional needs
  • Sing Your Heart Out, which received £3,000 to establish a Sing Your Heart Out Group in North Norfolk and run 24 sessions and other activities
  • Mardler, the North Norfolk Talking Newspaper, which received £2,500 to purchase a laptop and listening devices for users of the service
