The Freebridge Community Fund was established in 2010 to support community activity. Applications are assessed by a panel of staff and tenants. Freebridge paid �30,000 into the fund last year, attracting �12,500 in government match-funding.
Freebridge chief executive Tony Hall said: 'We set up the fund to support projects which have a positive impact within our local communities and these groups are all worthy recipients of funding.
'We are committed to supporting organisations, and working with partners, to make a difference within West Norfolk and I am sure that this funding will help the recipients to do just that.'
