A world in which Freemen of Norwich and their dependant relatives, who are in financial need, have that need reduced through our grants.
A world in which people who live within a 20-mile radius of Norwich Guildhall and are in financial need, have that need reduced through our grants to organisations – and in which those living in that area who wish to, can access high quality community, advice, support, recreational, cultural, and heritage projects, facilities, and activities.
In relation to our grant-making to Freemen and their dependant relatives, we will:
- Ensure that all Freemen (and through them, their dependant relatives), are aware of the range of grants they may apply for, our eligibility criteria and our application processes;
- Maintain a particular focus on the promotion of, and removing barriers to, education (using a broad understanding of the term) and to earning a living;
- Ensure that these aspects of our grant-making focus on those who are in financial need and that our grants make a significant positive difference to their lives.

- Ensure that our eligibility criteria and application processes are clear, simple, transparent, non-judgmental, and waste as little of our applicants’ time as possible;
- Review our grant-making and associated policies and procedures on an ongoing basis and change and adapt these as appropriate in response to changing need and other relevant information.
