SCF and Quartet Community Foundation to manage grantmaking for the Somerset Crimebeat Trust
The trustees of the Somerset Crimebeat Trust have entered into a new agreement with Somerset Community Foundation in partnership with Quartet Community Foundation to manage their grantmaking.
Crimebeat is the High Sheriff’s charity that makes grants of up to £1,500 to projects that give young people (up to the age of 25) the opportunity to help combat crime and the cause of crime in their communities.
Lucy Nelson, Chairman of Somerset Crimebeat Fund was delighted to announce the new arrangement: "I have been exceptionally impressed by working with the Somerset Community Foundation during my year as High Sheriff of Somerset. Justin Sargent, the CEO has an in depth knowledge of the enormous philanthropic network that goes on 'under the radar' throughout this large and diverse county. The profile of the High Sheriff of Somerset means that doors are open throughout the county and the network of contacts helps weld the outstanding efforts that are found county wide. It will be a marriage of like minds and hopefully will enhance and strengthen both organisations"
Applications for projects taking place in Somerset can now be made via the Somerset Crimebeat page here. Applications for projects in North Somerset and BANES should be submitted to Quartet Community Foundation here.
