Young people with autism, women with ovarian cancer and older people who are lonely at Christmas will all benefit from grants awarded last month through Quartet Community Foundation.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors we could award over £320,000 in grants to support more than 70 different community projects, improving life for a wide range of people.
These grants will help people across our area, from Clevedon to Downend and Midsomer Norton to Patchway and many points in between.
Here are just five of the fantastic local projects supported with grants last month:
· £23,700 to Full Circle to support them to build capacity (Skills, Time, Resources) as this a Community Anchor Organisation moves towards developing its trading. (Quartet Funding the Future Grant)
· £4,000 to Network Counselling and Training Ltd toward the cost of subsidised counselling sessions for people from lower income households across the North fringe of Bristol and into South Gloucestershire. (Express Grant)
· £1,000 to Nailsea & District Community Transport to help with removal costs as they move from their present base which is set to be demolished. (North Somerset Community Transport Grant)
· £797 to First Steps (Bath) for Stay and Play sessions and home visiting available to parents of preschool children in Twerton. (Express Grant)
· £2,000 to Alive Activities for training in Meaningful Engagement for Loved Ones to support unpaid carers, family and friends of older people living with dementia, whether living in the community or in care homes. (Express Grant)
