Tricia Fuller has been in the voluntary role at the helm of the local network of multi-sector professional firms, which provides free professional advice and guidance to community and voluntary organisations, not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises, for almost five years.
“Huge changes have taken place over the last five years,” Tricia commented, “the most significant being the transfer of the organisation out of Business In The Community and setting it up as a Community Interest Company (CIC). This gives us much more flexibility in terms of bidding for funding, and makes us more local.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time in helping to establish ProHelp in Norfolk. Getting it set up as a CIC was both a labour of love and, at times, a heartache but something of which I feel especially proud.”
As a company, Norse has now sponsored ProHelp for the ten years.
