Somerset Coronavirus Appeal

The coronavirus outbreak changed life as we knew it for all of us. But it hit our most vulnerable neighbours hardest. And the outbreak will have long-term social impacts that will make life even tougher for those who were already disadvantaged.

We launched the Somerset Coronavirus Appeal in late March 2020 to raise vital funds to help our communities through this difficult time.

Thanks to your donations – and support from The National Emergencies Trustwe raised over £1.5 million. This funding provided almost 400 grants to local charitable groups to help them respond to urgent need. Your donations provided food, medicine, counselling, emotional support, housing and so much more.




We published our Coronavirus Impact Report in April 2021 showing how we’ve used your donations. Contact us to request a copy through the post, view the online version here, or download the PDF here.

You can see a full list and a map of the grants made with funds from the Somerset Coronavirus Appeal here.
