Detailed Description

The Somerset Community Foundation is seeking applications to offer a simpler and more effective way for businesses to give locally.

This is the third grants round for the Somerset Fund. For this round, they want to fund small groups that run on less than £100,000 per year. The grants will be ‘unrestricted’, which means you can use them to pay for your ongoing running costs.

Funding Information

  • Grants of up to £2,500 are available.

What do they want to fund?

They are keen to support a wide range of groups from across Somerset. They are particularly interested in:

  • Giving the best start in life to the most disadvantaged children
  • Growing the life skills of young people
  • Improving the mental health of people of all ages
  • Increasing opportunities for better physical health
  • Supporting people with disabilities and life-limiting illnesses, and their carers
  • Combatting loneliness and isolation
  • Preference will be given to applicants that have not previously been awarded a grant from The Somerset Fund.

Who can apply?

You do not have to be a registered charity to apply, but the work you ask us to support must be legally charitable. You must have a:

  • bank account in the name of your group
  • governing document
  • management committee / board of local people
  • They also require groups that work with children or vulnerable adults to have a safeguarding policy.
