The Somerset Fund

The Somerset Fund

The Somerset Fund is administered by Somerset Community Foundation (SCF), and was created to offer a simpler and more effective way for businesses to give locally.

The first round of grants is now open, and small groups that run on less than £50,000 per year are invited to apply.

Unrestricted Funding is available to support a wide range of groups from across Somerset. SCF is particularly interested in:

  • Giving the best start in life to the most disadvantaged children
  • Growing the life skills of young people
  • Improving the mental health of people of all ages
  • Increasing opportunities for better physical health
  • Supporting people with disabilities and life-limiting illnesses, and their carers
  • Combatting loneliness and isolation

The application deadline is Friday 22nd February 2019. You can find out more here.
