Voluntary Norfolk supports the development and voice of local community groups, charities and social enterprises and aims to inspire and enable people to volunteer, take social action and make a difference.
We applaud the vital and valuable work carried out by community groups, charities and social enterprises in Norfolk and we recognise the ongoing challenges they face including funding, governance, communication, data protection, health & safety, safeguarding and volunteer recruitment and retention.
