Grants of up to £2,500 are up for grabs in seven Norfolk towns as part of a project to make them healthier places to live.

The Healthy Communities project, led by Norfolk County Council Public Health, has been working in towns across Norfolk, offering advice, support and resources to local people so they can work together to give everyone in their community the best chances of living well and longer.

Now, the project is offering grants of up to £2,500 – from a total funding pot of £68,000 – to help put some of the ideas into action. Applications are currently open for the following communities:


-Downham Market


-Great Yarmouth (Nelson ward and Central and Northgate ward)


-King’s Lynn (North Lynn)

-North Walsham

Priority consideration will be given to project bids that support one of the following health themes:

-Giving children the best start in life

-Healthy Lifestyles

-Reducing emergency hospital admissions

The fund is being coordinated by the Healthy Communities team, who have been working with local people and groups at a series of engagement events to:

-Identify the health and wellbeing issues that matter most to them

-Better understand the factors affecting their wellbeing

-Take a lead in shaping services and activities which meet local needs
