Grants and Funding

We are pleased to be able to let you know that the Momentum grants programme will be continuing in 2024.

Momentum (Norfolk) is funded by Norfolk County Council to award small grants of up to £500 to voluntary clubs, groups & organisations working with young people aged 11-19 years in Norfolk.

We will prioritise applications from smaller organisations (with an income under £250k a year). You will also need to be part of the Voluntary Norfolk Network.

We have recently moved to a rolling programme rather than quarterly deadlines to enable groups to apply at any time during the year.

We understand that this year has been a really challenging time for the VCSE sector in Norfolk and so we will try to offer applicants as much flexibility as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns about applying for Momentum grants, please contact

Momentum (Norfolk) Grants Programme

There are several things to consider before you decide to apply for our Grants.

  • Momentum (Norfolk) Grants are assessed by Young Commissioners from the Youth Advisory Boards.
  • Momentum is part of Voluntary Norfolk and you must have joined the Voluntary Norfolk Network to apply. Please contact for further information
  • Please allow 12 weeks for a decision to be made and funds to be released (we cannot fund activities that have already taken place).
  • There are four grants available and groups can apply for up to two grants per financial year.
  • You will be expected to show receipts for the full amount with your evaluation.

Before submitting your application please read through our Momentum Grant Guidelines.
