We are pleased to be able to let you know that the Momentum grants programme will be continuing in 2020/21.
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).
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.
There are several things to consider before you decide to apply for our Grants.
Before submitting your application please read through our Momentum Grant Guidelines.
This grant is for setting up a new youth group for 11-19 year olds and can include the costs of DBS checks, insurance, venue hire and set up costs.
This grant is for specific activities or a project that benefits young people, such as an outreach project, a camping trip or planned series of events.
This grant is for equipment or resources for your group such as a pool table, chairs, games consoles and games or computer equipment.
You can use this grant to cover the cost of training for your staff and volunteers’ professional development. This grant can also be used to pay towards the Level 2 and 3 Youth Work qualification.
