Momentum supports voluntary and community organisations working with children and young people in Norfolk. Our aim is to support local organisation to build a vibrant and diverse voluntary and community sector that inspires, involves and empowers the young people that they work with.
We do this through:
The Training Hub
We have a wide variety of courses, which are intended to develop the skills and knowledge of staff and volunteers working with children and young people. We have a subsidised training programme for those that wish to enter into youth work and are the only organisation in Norfolk to provide Level 2 and Level 3 courses in Youth Work.
Momentum has a small grants programme to help you deliver high quality activities for young people, which our members can apply to. We also keep you informed of other funding opportunities. To stay up to date with latest funding opportunities, subscribe to our monthly Empowering Communities Funding Newsletters.
Our partnership with the Safer programme enables our members (under £100k) to have free or reduced cost membership.
We provide a central point for information and guidance on a wide range of issues. We ensure that effective communication takes place between Norfolk County Council, Statutory partnerships and organisations in our Network that directly affect their work with children and young people. We also coordinate The Voluntary Sector Forum (Children, Young People and Families) for voluntary community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations that provide services to children, young people and their families in Norfolk.
