Funding Opportunities in Norfolk
There are lots of funding opportunities for providers, clubs, communities and families in Norfolk.
On this page we provide information on funding that can be used to support sport and physical activity, or develop communities. 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 outside of the grants listed below. However, we can help you source and apply for existing funding. For help, check out the resources below and feel free to get in touch with our team for advice.
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.
Improving Lives Grant
The Improving Lives grant programme provides grants to charitable organisations that help people when other sources of support have failed, or are simply not available.
Eligible organisations include charities and not-for-profit organisations (including social enterprises) in the UK with a turnover of £20,000 – £500,000.
