Information on grants available for individuals or voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. This includes Cultural Connections Volunteering grants and the Great Yarmouth Community Investment Fund.

Cultural Connections grants

Cultural Connections accessibility grants

The Cultural Connections volunteering project has a small fund to help residents overcome barriers they face to volunteering. Residents can use accessibility grants for anything which helps them volunteer in a role which excites them, such as travel, translation or software. Voluntary, community or social enterprise organisations can also apply to support a potential volunteer.

  • put on their own hyper local events
  • inspire attendees to commit to further community action and volunteering
  • celebrate local culture
  • support volunteers to sign up to Cultural Connections volunteering opportunities within local community groups
