Somerset Community Foundation
Somerset Community Foundation creates vibrant and inclusive communities by supporting the essential work of local charities and voluntary groups throughout Somerset.
We work exclusively in Somerset, funding hundreds of local organisations that transform people’s quality of life and well-being every year. The work of the organisations we support is fundamental in tackling some of the most important challenges in Somerset today. These organisations are small but incredibly efficient and effective, using their local knowledge to respond to local needs in every community across Somerset. They are at the heart of the vibrant community life that we all enjoy and benefit from.
Somerset Community Foundation relies on the support of donors to provide funding, advice and support these local grassroots organisations.
Since 2002 we have built up a comprehensive and unique understanding of the organisations serving Somerset’s communities and the special role they play in tackling some of the most important issues of our time, including mental health, loneliness and poverty.
