QAm I eligible to apply for a Community Grant?A
Yes, if you belong to a community group, faith group, local charity, or local club that is based in the Greater Norwich area, or Great Yarmouth. The map below shows the eligible areas. Individual applications cannot be accepted.
QWhat kinds of things can I apply for?A
The community grants pot is designed to help organisations set up, run, and promote a Big Stroll event. Some example uses might be:
- To hire a local space as a start/end point for your Big Stroll if your organisation does not have a local base
- To support event running costs such as signage, poster printing, or other infrastructure investment
- To support paid for promotion in local publications or on social media platforms like Facebook to recruit people to take part in your event
- To provide refreshments for attendees and staff

QI can’t download the Communications Toolkit filesA
If you have problems with the download, please email email@example.com and a member of the team can email you the assets you need.
QOur organisation doesn’t have a social media account, can we still host a Big Stroll?A
Absolutely! There are editable poster and leaflet assets in the Comms Toolkit section so you can create your own posters to put up around your area, and the leaflets can be used on email distribution lists.
We would still love to see any pictures of your Big Stroll, so do email any pictures you want to share to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share on social media on your behalf!
QIs there a minimum number of people that need to attend to make it a Big Stroll?A
There are no minimum numbers, but Big Strolls are designed to be community events rather than small group walks. We have designed the Comms toolkit to help you reach as many people as possible in your local communities to make the walks as visible as possible!
