One of our partners – The NCF – are thrilled to announce that they have been included in a UKCF bid to bring national funding to Great Yarmouth. The DCMS Know Your Neighbourhood Fund aims to increase regular volunteering and reduce chronic loneliness in the Borough of Great Yarmouth.
Grants of up to £20,000 are available and must be spent by 31st March 2023. This marks the end of the first phase of the fund. This initial phase of funding can give local voluntary organisations the opportunity to investigate new ideas around volunteering. It is also available for them to test potential projects and develop an evidence base that will help position them for a further application in the subsequent rounds of this fund.
This is the first year of a three-year project which will run until March 2025. The first year will end in March 2023. We therefore encourage organisations to make an application to the Know Your Neighbourhood Fund as soon as possible. More details are to follow on the second and third years of the fund. However, the government expect to invest a total of £1.3 million in local projects by 2025!Back to News
