Supporting disadvantaged communities in the West of England

The challenges facing our communities are many. From the cost of living crisis and homelessness, to mental health and climate change, there are huge challenges that our local communities need sustained help to meet.

Many of us want to donate locally but it can be hard to know where to start, especially when society’s problems seem too large for any one of us to solve. And, with so many small local charities and organisations actively providing essential help, it can be difficult to know who they are and whether they will stay resilient to continue providing support into the future. 

Quartet awards grants every year to hundreds of local charities and community groups.  We are here to help guide you, whether you want to make a one off gift, or set up a fund that keeps giving for generations. 

Together we can sow the seeds of change in the West of England.

Our vision

A place for all to thrive

We want to see a West of England where communities are well resourced, confident and strong, where grassroots community and voluntary groups can respond to the needs and aspirations of all who live there, now and forever. Quartet is here to inspire local philanthropy, channeling people’s generosity to help our region become fairer, greener and a place for all to thrive.
