We are very pleased to report that we have received funding from the fledgling Equality & Human Rights Commission to work on what promises to be a very exciting and potentially very significant project.
We have successfully completed our landmark project; 'Norfolk's Hidden Heritage'.
The CCDL Project is managed and led by NNREC along with the joint partners of the Steering Group who are: Ipswich & Suffolk Council for Racial Equality (ISCRE), Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB), Age Concern Norfolk, Age Concern Norwich and ChangeUp.
