Our Services during Covid-19
Community Action Norfolk, Norfolk Community Foundation, Voluntary Norfolk and Momentum are working with Norfolk County Council, the district councils, health providers and other VCSE organisations to deliver a coordinated response to Covid-19 which includes centralised points to request help, to register volunteers and to support community groups.
People needing support
If you are a member of the public needing assistance during Covid 19, please call Norfolk County Council’s Customer Contact Centre: 0344 800 8020 or visit the Community Support for People at Home section of their website. Please note Voluntary Norfolk is unable to respond to individual requests for help.
If you wish to volunteer
With the worst of the Covid crisis hopefully now over and lockdown restrictions easing, we are once again focusing on recruiting volunteers to support the vital work of voluntary organisations across Norfolk. We are asking all prospective volunteers to search for volunteering opportunities and register their availability via our Simply Connect Volunteer Portal, which has details of almost 200 different volunteering roles. Visit our Volunteering Page for more details.
Support for community groups
If you are a charity or local group and need additional support, please contact Community Action Norfolk.

Voluntary Norfolk’s Usual Services
All of our usual services have been affected by the measures we have taken, on government advice, to maintain social distancing during Covid-19. We have worked hard to adapt and respond to the new environment in which we are working and to maintain as many of our services as possible. Please visit the following pages of our website for specific Service Updates.
Please bear with us while we continue to establish new ways to provide our services and support.
