Smart Communities Ltd has a Grant Fund to enable communities that support or directly work to develop food resilience in communities across Somerset. Any Somerset community group, charity, organisation, and agency can apply for a maximum of £2,000. The deadline for applications is 31st March 2022 and funded by Somerset County Council.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, food security became a huge focus for communities across the nation and many communities reacted to their local needs. Supporting individuals, families, homeless people, anyone isolated, and anyone in need with easy access to food, through deliveries, collection points, and storage solutions. Often these needs were always there in our communities but not seen.
Jinny Uppington Smart Communities Business Development Officer said: “We are delighted to be providing support to groups and organisations all helping some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.”
The funds can be used in many ways and there is no fixed list of things we will fund but are here to support your local needs, ideas and solutions as every community is different. The grant aims to support organisations and groups to build resilience for the future.
