NSCP Grant Programme Open for Applications

NSCP Grant Programme Open for Applications

During the last financial year NSCP, as a Community Interest Company, established a charitable fund to benefit the population of North Somerset with Quartet Community Foundation acting as the trustee/administrator of the fund.

Quartet are now publicising a call for applications to grants from the fund.

The fund is 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.

To be successful applications must be able to demonstrate how the grant will benefit the health or wellbeing of disadvantaged people in North Somerset. 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 NSCP 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
• early intervention and prevention around health and well-being.

Nick Danks, Chief Financial Officer, said: “We are proud to announce that the application process is now open. Quartet Community Foundation will consider applications from organisations with charitable aims, in particular those who will be able to bring benefit to the disadvantaged members of our community. NSCP is a community interest company with social value at its heart. Due to this social conscience we would like to ensure any surplus we make in delivering healthcare to the community of North Somerset is used for the benefit of the community in this part of the world. These grants are a great way for us to make North Somerset a better place to live and work.”
