Money is available through a new grant scheme for projects in West Norfolk which help communities or improve people’s lives.
The borough council is publicising its Small Grants Scheme to encourage people to apply for help.
Any project applying must be able to show one of these things:
Improved understanding of different people and cultures in our local community.
Increased involvement from people who face barriers to participation in community life.
Greater use of community buildings or outdoor community spaces, particularly in rural areas.
Healthier and safer lifestyles for the whole community.
Increased participation in arts and cultural activities which are accessible to the whole community.

Chris Morley, the borough councillor responsible for finance, said: “This scheme can give people the help they need to get a project off the ground or support an existing one.
“There are many fantastic examples of how this scheme has supported people and groups in the past. This is all about supporting local people who have ideas about making where they live a better place for everyone.”
