A professional firms network which provides free services to community organisations has secured its independence.

Norfolk ProHelp had been operating for 10 years under the banner of Business in the Community before becoming a Community Interest Company in February.

Now the group – one of a handful of ProHelp networks left in the once-national scheme – is calling on community groups and local charities to get in touch.

Over the last year, Norfolk ProHelp has supported several voluntary sector organisations with a range of services, including web design for East Anglian Complementary Health, legal advice to TLC GY and architectural support to Attleborough Boxing Club. The network is also entering into a new partnership with Community Action Norfolk.

Tricia Fuller, chairman of Norfolk ProHelp and group HR director for its sponsor Norse, said: 'This is a fresh start for us.'
