Community groups in North Somerset can claim a share of a health and wellbeing fund worth £360k.
Grants of up to £20,000 can be awarded to groups supporting the health and wellbeing of people across the district.
The fund has been set up by North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) with the Quartet Community Foundation, and the grant will also go towards educating healthcare providers in the region.
Quartet Community Foundation spokesman Julie Newman said: “This funding will boost community groups’ projects tackling health and wellbeing such as supporting older and disabled people, tackling homelessness, supporting food banks and BME groups. This fund has a wide remit.”
