NCP small grant fund

We are pleased to advise that the Norfolk Coast Partnership Small Grant Fund is officially open. We are now able to offer small grants of between £500-£3,000 for local, community projects which bring environmental benefits to the Norfolk Coast area of outstanding natural beauty and its communities. Projects which encourage people of diverse ethnicities, age groups and accessibility needs to experience and enjoy the area would be particularly welcomed. 

Ideally, the fund can offer 75% of the full value of the project, this can be increased in exceptional circumstances.

The fund has been made possible thanks to the profits from the Norfolk Coast Partnership's range of merchandise, which is available from our on-line shop and from a variety of stockists across the area.

The fund has already supported one project, the creation of a new boardwalk enabling access for visitors across some of their wetter habitats at Natural Surroundings, Bayfield, near Holt.

Examples of other projects might be schools looking to enhance their outdoor learning area for wildlife, sensory needs or vegetable growing; care homes wishing to incorporate wildlife areas into their grounds for residents to enjoy; parish biodiversity projects or schemes facilitating non-motorised transport for visitors/locals.

For further ideas and details on successfully funded projects please have a look at our previously operational Sustainable Development Fund.
