Support your local community through Big Norfolk Holiday Fun
Big Norfolk Holiday Fun can help support, develop and also grow your local community, as shown in our latest case study.
The recently released case study shows how adopting a community focus can improve outcomes for local children. We visited Chapel Break OSC CIC, who showed us how they have been able to support their local community, by making excellent use of the Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme and the funding that accompanies it.
How can the programme help local communities?
The Big Norfolk Holiday Fun programme provides funding to local providers who sign up. This funding can be used to establish, improve and expand activity sessions so more children and young people may benefit from it.
There are various ways in which local communities can benefit from a wider range of opportunities:
- More children able to take part: By expanding the number of activities available around local communities, this means more children will be able to sign up and take part as provider capacity increases.
- Connecting local schools and partners: At Active Norfolk, we pride ourselves on a partner-led approach. We make full use of this through the programme. By getting local schools involved, we are able to connect them with activity providers; a valuable connection which will benefit both sides, and improve outcomes for local children.
- More volunteering and job opportunities: By expanding the range of activities on offer, there are more opportunities for local people. This includes young people wanting to get more involved with things happening near them. This not only benefits them further down the line, but offers the chance to develop a sense of community pride.
- Helping the community grow and thrive: We hope that by bringing the community together with plenty of varied opportunities for children and young people, it will help smaller communities develop and thrive.
