Apply for Funding

We are here to help you and your organisation during the coronavirus outbreak.

If you need to adapt or postpone an activity that we have funded in response to the outbreak then please let us know. In most cases we will be able to agree such changes.

If you have recently applied for a grant, or were planning to apply to one of our regular programmes in the coming weeks, then please be aware that we have temporarily paused most of our grantmaking. We have done this so that we are able to manage a funding package that will allow local groups to respond to and recover from the current situation. See the links below for funding currently available. 

We would also recommend you check our website regularly for further updates here.

Somerset is a wonderful place to live, but we want to make it even better by helping our voluntary, community and social enterprise sector thrive.

We work with over 84 local donors to offer grants and social investments to do that. Each one tackles disadvantage, transforms lives, and creates vibrant and inclusive communities.

Follow the links below to find out more information about different funding opportunities, who can apply, when and how. We encourage you to take some time to read this information.

But we also encourage you to pick up the phone, or send us an email. If you have a great idea and need funding to make it a reality, then we want to hear from you.
