Norfolk early childhood community fund scheme

Community groups that support young children and their parents in Norfolk, can now apply to a new community fund.  

The Norfolk early childhood community fund scheme aims to:

  • Help children age 0-5 to achieve their developmental milestones
  • Ensure children and their parents or carers are not lonely or isolated

How much are the grants?

Grants of up to £2,500 are available.

What can a grant be used for?

To help set up, or expand, groups being run for 0-5 year olds and their parents or carers in Norfolk. 

Groups might include music, creative, arts or physical play. These groups will encourage parents/carers to play alongside their child, and give opportunities to make new friends close to home.
