Norfolk Citizens Advice Grants for individuals Database

Norfolk Citizens Advice Grants for individuals Database

Norfolk Citizens Advice have launched their Grants for Individuals in need database. The database is funded as part of the Coordinated Community Support Programme and is open access on the Norfolk Citizens Advice website. The database contains largely small local grant giving organisations that operate in Norfolk.

The webpage contains:

  • Brief information on how to use the database
  • A short video demonstration
  • A tips document on maximising successful applications with hints and tips from grant organisation trustees
  • A feedback link to report out of date information, suggest organisations to include,  or just give feedback on your experience of using the database

Norfolk Citizens Advice  has been running webinars on using the database,  and if you weren’t able to attend they can provide you with recording of one of the webinars,  or the resources used so you can run your own in-house.

Contact Isobel Abbott at i.abbott@ncab.org.uk for further information.

Swaffham Road Drainage Works

PMA967 Mundford, Swaffham Road – drainage works

Drainage works are due to start on or soon after Monday 26 April to improve the existing drainage system at Swaffham Road, Mundford. Works are expected to take 4 weeks to complete, weather permitting. Drainage works will see installation of new gullies and access resurfacing to help alleviate surface water flooding issues in the area.

During the work, there will be a lane closure in place on the western side of A1065 from approximately house no.31 till house no.41. Traffic will be controlled using 2-way controlled traffic lights and traffic lights will be controlled manually during peak hours to ensure any traffic delays kept to a minimum.

Due to the nature of the work there will be times when sections of the road, including vehicle access to properties, will be temporarily unavailable. During these times residents may be asked to park their vehicles at alternative locations. Our contractor will notify residents direct if access will be affected. Anyone who has any specific access requirements can contact us using the email address below, or speak to the team on site, so these can be accommodated wherever possible.

The County Council thanks people for their patience during this drainage improvement work.

The work which will cost £30,000 will be carried out by Norfolk County Council and their contractors.
