Local charities and social enterprises seeking funding to start a new service or develop an asset could benefit from the Somerset Social Enterprise Fund (SSEF), run by SCF. Compass Disability used their money - a social investment award of £71,000 - to convert a building into their Compass Wellbeing centre.

SSEF provides funding, typically between £20,000 and £100,000, through a blend of grants (money that does not need to be paid back) and unsecured loans.
