Grants for individuals

We run a number of grant programmes for individuals in Somerset. These are summarised below and each one has a link that will take you to more information and an application form.

Whilst our Grants for Individuals programmes are currently running as normal, we are having to divert resources to prepare a funding programme for charities and community groups responding to the coronavirus emergency.

This means there will be delays to the processing of applications to our Grants for Individuals programmes and we are asking applicants to bear with us at this difficult time.

If you have any queries or concerns regarding your grant application or award please email and we will respond as soon as possible.  Thank you.
