Red Nose Day Community Cash Fund Opens
Somerset Community Foundation is delighted to announce that community groups in Somerset now have the chance to apply for Comic Relief's 'Red Nose Day Community Cash' funding. Grants of £500 - £1000 are available through the Foundation to small organisations in Somerset that are carrying out great work to help people of all ages. Comic Relief believe that local people know what is needed in their community and are best placed to make any changes, but sometimes struggle to get the support that is required. It is hoped that having lots of activities in an area brings vibrancy and helps people feel more included in their community, builds their skills and increases their sense of achievement.
Somerset Community Foundation welcomes applications from small local groups with an income of less than £100,000, who are looking to fund projects or activities which will benefit people who are disadvantaged. The grants are available to community organisations, registered charities, social enterprises, co-operatives, faith organisations and community interest companies. If you run an activity or community group in Somerset please do get in touch - parent and toddler groups, lunch clubs for isolated individuals, equipment and materials for sports groups and training and volunteering projects are just a few examples of projects and groups who have received grants in previous years.
