£10,000 funding still available for groups supporting disadvantaged people in North Somerset

Published on
The North Somerset Intercultural Dance Association (NSID) benefited from £2,000 through a previous round of grants through the North Somerset Community Partnership Grants Programme. The funding through Quartet Community Foundation went towards outreach to attract older people and ethnic minorities throughout North Somerset to take part in NSID’s activities.

Community groups and projects which support people to improve their health or economic, social and environmental wellbeing or which support early intervention and prevention in North Somerset can once again apply for grants of up to £5,000 through Quartet Community Foundation. The deadline for applications is 18 October 2019.

To be eligible to apply groups must benefit the health or wellbeing of disadvantaged people in North Somerset.

Julie Newman, Philanthropy Officer for Quartet Community Foundation said: “North Somerset it is a great place to live but research shows that not everyone benefits. Life expectancy inequalities in North Somerset are growing and the number of people with depression is also increasing year on year. These grants fund those small, local causes that do such great work supporting the health and wellbeing of North Somerset residents of all ages.

“Please get in touch with me if you’re part of a group and would like help with the application process.”

Grants of between £500 and £5,000 are available through the North Somerset Community Partnership Grant Programme and groups must apply before 18 October 2019. For details visit
