This is an exciting new role within our team. Every year, we award funding worth around £2.5m to hundreds of small, local organisations across Somerset.

We would especially welcome applications from minority ethnic people, people with disabilities, younger people, LGBTQ+ people and people with ‘lived experience’ relevant to our work.
