Community Renewal Fund

Businesses and organisations in North Somerset can apply for a share of the new UK Community Renewal Fund.

Applications put forward will be go through a shortlisting process with successful proposals combined to submit a bid for a £3m funding pot. Individual organisations included as part of this combined package will then be awarded funding from this pot if our bid is successful. 

We're inviting project bids in line with two themes:

  • inclusion and equality and thriving towns
  • villages and coastal communities

Organisations will be asked to submit applications for projects that align to at least one of the following government priorities:

  • investment in skills
  • investment in local business
  • investment in communities and place
  • supporting people into employment

If we are awarded the fund by central Government, we will administer the new funding to support local areas in preparation for the launch of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund in 2022.

There will be a webinar for potential applicants on Monday 10 May at 2pm. To register your interest please email business@n-somerset.gov.uk.

If you want to apply, read the UK Community Renewal Fund invitation to bid document for more information.

Bids must be in by Friday 28 May.
