Future Leaders Fund

The Future Leaders Fund provides grants to Norfolk-based young people aged 17-24 years to help them grow as leaders, whilst helping others in a community.

In the last 5 years over 50 young people have gone to over 23 countries with support of the fund, including to Bangladesh, Belize, Cambodia, Tanzania, Costa Rica/Nicaragua, India, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Chile, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Morocco, Japan, Stafford and Attleborough.

It excludes any trips, projects and expeditions that are part of a programme of educational study. 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.
