Funding Opportunities in Norfolk
There are lots of funding opportunities for providers, clubs and families in Norfolk.
On this page we provide information on funding that can be used to support sport and physical activity. We will also update this page as new funding opportunities become available.
Please note, Active Norfolk no longer provide funding directly to clubs and organisations. However, if you’re looking for support in applying for existing funding, get in touch with our team for advice.
Active Norfolk handle applications for the Together Fund in Norfolk.
We have successfully worked with local organisations and applied for three rounds of the Together Fund since Summer 2020. This has totalled almost £250,000 of funding which we have brought in to support sport and physical activity, and provide services for communities and groups in Norfolk who can benefit most from it.
You can also visit our Case Studies section to read about some of the successful projects we’ve helped support.
Short-Term & Related Funds
The following funds are either shorter term, or related to communities and wellbeing as opposed to specifically targeting physical activity providers. As these are often closely related, you may also find them useful. For more information on any of the below, contact the providers directly for assistance.
The Foundation aims to be responsive to where need is greatest and therefore supports a wide range of charitable activity in the following categories:
- Youth & Education
- Museums & Heritage
- Environment & Health
