Grants

Norwich City Powerball Football Club

Norwich City Powerchair Football Club (NCPFC) The Football Club for Powered Wheelchair Users!

By providing powered wheelchair users, typically those disabled people with severe physical impairments, the opportunity to play a competitive team sport (typically for the first time), not only does the club serve to enhance social inclusion for that minority group, more importantly it provides the individual concerned with a sense of achievement.

We were approached by Tracey Coleman who runs the club who required help with funding.

Mandi Blake-Tracy (Branch Manager at Mears Care Norwich) met with two of the players for the Norwich City Powerball Football Club one of which we provide care for, and kindly presented the cheque donated by the Mears Foundation.

Congratulations on receiving a Foundation grant!

We are pleased to provide funding to the following organizations:-

Scarboccia Club

The Royal Society for Blind Children 

Kinship Care NI

Signal - Building deaf friendly communities

Specialist Autism Services (formally known as Sacar)
