Grants & Funding
for individuals

Our different funding programmes for individual people are shown below.

We also run funding programmes that offer grants to groups.

Before you apply

Before starting your application, please be aware that:

  • it doesn’t cost anything to apply for money
  • you don’t have to be good at writing to get money from us
  • our friendly team will help you if you need extra support, have any accessibility requirements or if English isn’t your first language. You can also contact us if you have any questions, or can’t use our online forms.

You also need to remember that we:

  • give most of our money to individual people here in Somerset, but do have some for people in neighbouring areas as well
  • can’t support everyone who applies to us. We’re usually able to support 2 out of every 3 applications we receive

Need support with your application?

If you’re looking for funding but don’t know where to start, we’ll do our best to help you.

You can contact us and speak to one of our friendly team. Or you can find the contact details for the best member of our team to speak with on each funding programme page.

Sadly, we can’t help everyone who applies to us for a grant. You can find helpful information about lots of other grants and support for individuals here:
