Health Goals

We are looking for compassionate and friendly people to join us as Health Goal Volunteers for the Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust in South of Norfolk. This exciting new role involves supporting patients to achieve a particular goal that will improve their health and wellbeing; for example, joining a group to pursue a hobby and to make new friends.

Volunteers will visit the client weekly for around 2-3 hours per week, for a period of 2-8 weeks, depending on the goal the individual would like to achieve. All volunteers will receive full training, including the opportunity to attend a 2 day course in Health Coaching, and ongoing support. This is a great opportunity to make a real difference to your local community.

For more information about becoming a Health Goal volunteer, please contact Pavlina Parashkevova, Volunteer Co-Ordinator (South) on 01603 272336 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

£50k pot for community projects

Are you a community group looking for funding? South Norfolk Council has Community Action Fund grants available from £1,000-£15,000 to support projects and initiatives that benefit local people.

 Last year the Council funded a range of projects including play equipment at Breckland Park in Costessey, an automatic watering system at Wortwell Bowls Club and a trailer for Norfolk Knights Wheelchair Rugby Team.

 If you would like to apply for funding, please contact your local district councillor, who will apply to the Community Action Fund for you. 

The next Community Action Fund panel will be held on Thursday 31 May.
