South Somerset District Council Community Grants

We have long had a tradition of supporting communities and the local voluntary and community sector. The principal way that we provide this support is through funding third party voluntary sector support services, and through our own community grants programme.

About South Somerset District Council Community Grants

Who do we fund?

  • Community, voluntary and charitable organisations
  • Not-for-profit groups with a signed set of group rules
  • Parish or Town Councils
  • Other organisations e.g. churches and schools (including Academies) provided wider community benefits can be shown

What do we fund?

  • Up to 50% of the application costs
  • Requests between £100 and £12,500 can be considered

Other things to consider

  • We hope that you have the support of your parish council - which may include a financial contribution, and we expect other sources of funding to be considered, which ensures that every £1 we provide for community grants goes as far as possible.
  • Your project will need to be well-planned and managed by your group - our grants are only offered after a careful assessment
  • Applications for more than £1,000 are decided by your SSDC Area Committee.
