A New Start For Norfolk ProHelp
Norfolk ProHelp is delighted to announce that, after 10 years under the banner of Business in the Community, it has become an independent Community Interest Company and is calling on community groups and charities to get in touch.
Tricia Fuller, Group HR Director of Norse Group and Chair of Norfolk ProHelp said: “This is a fresh start for us and we are looking forward to being able to provide more direct and tailored support to the communities of Norfolk that most need it. Our new website is simpler with a clear message and greater opportunities to promote the great pro bono work that our members do. As public sector cuts continue to bite, our services are more important than ever, so I call on professional firms that are not part of ProHelp to join our network. Norse Group is delighted to be sponsoring Norfolk ProHelp and ensuring that it continues to add value to both communities and our business members.”
Norfolk ProHelp is also entering into a new partnership with Community Action Norfolk, which will help to better meet the needs of community organisations. Jonathan Clemo, Chief Executive of Community Action Norfolk said: “It is great to be working in partnership with Norfolk ProHelp. This will help us collectively provide a more complete set of support to Norfolk’s many community groups, that are so vital to our county’s vibrancy. This partnership will help us join up our specialist community development support with the pro bono advice and support of professional firms.”
Mark Pendlington, Chair of New Anglia LEP is a big supporter. He said: “Norfolk ProHelp provides the vital link that is really so important to helping community projects across the county get off the ground – projects that make a huge difference to peoples’ lives and make our region an even better place to live, work and learn. An impressive array of businesses large and small are already doing amazing work, and I’d urge even more to sign up, as Norfolk ProHelp embarks upon a new and exciting chapter which puts it on course for even greater success.”
