What the Sector Leadership Group is - and why you need to know about it

CAN has always maintained that it is important to share collected experience, wisdom and skills, and collaborate where possible. It is equally important to be able to present all that expertise to key funders and decision-makers in the public sector, and regionally and, ultimately, at national level. 

Arts and culture in Norfolk – sector resilience and COVID-19

The Arts and Culture sector is an important element in the VCSE fraternity, in the context of community engagement and outreach, and addressing local health issues such as social isolation and loneliness. Natalie Jode, Executive Director at Creative Arts East, has seen the impact of the pandemic on operational capability and capacity across the county.

CAN - working in partnership in West Norfolk

CAN has a special service level agreement with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk (BCKLWN). We deliver a range of services across the Council’s area which, at 556 square miles, is the largest geographic local authority district in Norfolk.  And we very much value this relationship.
