What can you apply for?
To be eligible for a grant from the North Somerset Community Partnership Grant Programme your work/activity must benefit the health or wellbeing of people in North Somerset who are disadvantaged. The beneficiaries may be disadvantaged due to poverty, disability, age, location or culture. The work/activity should reflect the concerns and priorities of the target beneficiaries and fit well with existing community provision.

The North Somerset Community Partnership Grant Programme particularly seeks to support local voluntary and community groups and organisations in North Somerset that:

• support people to improve their health or economic, social and environmental well-being and/or
• support early intervention and prevention around health and well-being.

Who can apply?
These grants are targeted at small organisations with charitable aims where a small amount of money can make a significant difference. Beneficiaries must be in North Somerset and applicants ideally will also be based and working in North Somerset. There are no limits to the size of organisation which may apply, however, if an applicant organisation has more than eight months of its annual expenditure in unrestricted reserves then its application will be considered a lower priority for funding. If your organisation is holding significant financial reserves, you will need to make it clear why these reserves cannot be used to cover the cost of the activity. We encourage applications from partnerships that involve shared responsibility for the development and delivery of an activity.
