Up to £12m available for Community Renewal Projects in Somerset

Somerset County Council is the lead authority for Somerset in the Community Renewal Fund. The county has the chance to bid for up to £12m. 

The Fund aims to support people and communities across the UK most in need to pilot programmes and new approaches, and will invest in skills, community and place, local business, and supporting people into employment.

Somerset County Council will be inviting applications from businesses, community groups, education providers and district councils for bids which must be submitted to Government by 18 June 2021.


Funding is short-term with projects needing to be delivered by March 2022 and will pave the way for the Government’s Shared Prosperity Fund, due to launch next year. 


Please visit the Somerset Community Renewal Fund website www.somerset.gov.uk/CommunityRenewalfund for further information on the fund and how to apply.
