Norfolk Community Foundation

Norfolk Community Foundation is a Norfolk based, registered charity that matches generous people to important community causes so that together, we can change the world on our doorstep. Our work touches 1 in 4 people locally. We are the charity that bridges the gap between those in need and those who can help by: - Supporting vulnerable people - Enabling stronger communities – supporting the people, places and spaces that help communities thrive and grow - Helping people to develop their skills, move towards employment and take up opportunities to enrich their lives. We’re proud to support several local charities and groups working with people with dementia, helping to raise awareness of the condition and making society more inclusive. Together, Norfolk shines brighter.
