Future Leaders Fund

The Future Leaders Fund provides grants to Norfolk-based young people aged 17-24 who want to participate in projects that grow themselves as leaders, whilst helping others in a community.

In the last 5 years over 50 young people have received the grant and have done projects in over 25 different countries including Bangladesh, Belize, Cambodia, Tanzania, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, India, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Chile, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Morocco, Japan and the UK.

We have partnered with a number of organisations including Raleigh International, VSO, Project Trust and the Scouts to ensure trusted and reputable projects for our young people.

Please fill in the application form to apply for funding.

The fund is managed by the Norfolk Community Foundation, and has an independent advisory panel who decide on the distribution of grants.
Inspired by the spirit of Horatio Nelson, we support, encourage and develop the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow.
Nelson always took a younger officer to his top meetings, sponsoring and mentoring the young in his fleet. He also carried acorns of English oak in his pocket to plant for the future.
