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 have just two weeks left to apply for grants of up to £5,000 through Quartet Community Foundation.

To be eligible for a grant from the North Somerset Community Partnership Grant Programme the group’s activity must benefit the health or wellbeing of disadvantaged people in North Somerset.

Julie Newman, Philanthropy Officer for Quartet Community Foundation said: “I’d love to see applications from small, local groups supporting the health and wellbeing of North Somerset people of all ages. This could be supporting young people to make healthy choices around food, smoking and drug misuse, or reducing social isolation for older people or other projects that support wellbeing.

“Our online application process is straight forward and I am happy to speak to groups or visit to answer any queries. Please do apply, this grants programme has proven that a small amount of funding can make a huge difference.”

Grants of between £500 and £5,000 are available through the North Somerset Community Partnership Grant Programme and groups must apply before 26 June 2019. Find out more about the North Somerset Community Partnership Grant Programme.
