Some of the successful applicants to last year’s fund receiving their awards from Freebridge staff.

A housing association in King’s Lynn is inviting applications from community groups and charities across West Norfolk interested in a share of its £5,000 funding pot.

Freebridge Community Housing’s annual Community Fund offers local groups grants of up to £1,000 to support activities meeting the needs of the community. 

Applications are welcome from groups whose aims include promoting health and wellbeing, tackling disadvantage, supporting local solutions to local needs, promoting community cohesion, developing sustainable and supportive communities, and improving the environment.

Allocations are decided by a panel made up of Freebridge employees and members from the organisation’s Tenant Panel.

Freebridge director of housing, Robert Clarke, said: “Freebridge is committed to supporting community groups and the work they do and through our fund we can provide financial help to projects and initiatives that are making a real difference to people’s lives and helping to support a better West Norfolk.”

The closing date for applications is Friday, May 17.
