The Hinkley Point C Community Fund Strategic Grants Programme will target specific impacts felt within Somerset communities as a result of Hinkley Point C. These impacts will be identified through consultation with communities and their representatives as the project progresses. It is likely that priorities within the strategic grants programmes will change as communities change therefore we anticipate it being an iterative process and advise applicants to continue to check the available grants programmes regularly.
Community Cohesion was the first theme that was identified as an impact of the Hinkley Point C development and associated projects. It is a broad ‘umbrella’ term that can be used to describe many aspects of community development and because of this we identified three priorities within community cohesion to focus interventions. This led to a number of applications and the Awards Panel has made 7 grant awards under this theme.
The Strategic Grants Programme has a two stage application process. Initially we invite expressions of interest to be submitted before shortlisting applicants who will be invited to submit a full application.
