Funding available for Community Groups in Taunton Deane
Small grants of up to £1,000 are now available for community groups in Taunton Deane. The Taunton Deane Borough Council Voluntary and Community Sector Small Grants Fund, delivered by Somerset Community Foundation on behalf of the Council, will be open for applications from Monday, October 2 until Friday, November 17.
Local charities, community groups and social enterprises, based within the Borough, can apply for funding towards their projects, for capital purchases or for their ongoing running costs (also known as core costs) and in some cases may also benefit from additional match funding from Somerset Community Foundation.
Last year, 24 local groups were awarded a grant from the fund. Cllr Jane Warmington, Taunton Deane Borough Council Executive Member for Community Leadership said: “I am especially pleased that we are able to offer these grants to the voluntary and community groups that do so much in our area. This is a great way for them to boost their work and I would urge them to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for funding towards running, delivery or project costs.”
