We have set up a new Community Innovation Fund through NOA which aims to involve parents in conversations about education and future goals, ensure conversations about different types of careers and jobs start at an early age and support certain areas of Norwich where children may have few successful role models.
The Community Innovation Fund looks for organisations who can work with children and their families to facilitate these conversations. We have organised an event on Wednesday 23rd January for organisations who are keen to find out more. Please sign up via Eventbrite
The £160,000 fund is intended to fund a variety of different projects across the city and includes two distinct strands:
- Projects that deliver activities for children and their families (primary aged children and pupils in the early years of secondary school)
- Projects that offer technology and/or marketing solutions in Norwich to encourage children and their families to have these types of conversations
