Charitable groups making a difference for people in their community could be in line to receive thousands of pounds in grant funding.

North Somerset Community Partnership (NSCP) has launched a grant programme to help organisations who work with disadvantaged people.

The programme supports voluntary groups which promote health and wellbeing.

An NSCP spokesman said: “These grants are targeted at small organisations with charitable aims where a small amount of money can make a significant difference. Beneficiaries must be in North Somerset and applicants ideally will also be based and working in North Somerset.

The deadline for applications is 11am on November 2.
