COMMUNITY groups helping poor and isolated people living on Weston's housing estates are being given thousands of pounds to fund their work.Organisations working to reduce crime, improve the environment and improve the quality of life for residents can bid for extra cash to fund their projects.The South Ward Neighbourhood Management Partnership has £3,000 worth of grants to give to voluntary and community groups based in the area, particularly those with little funding.North Somerset councillor Ian Parker said: "These grants represent a great opportunity for local groups to get their projects off the ground. I'd urge all small local organisations working in the South Ward to apply." Groups do not have to be registered charities to apply for a grant, as long as the work it does has charitable aims and the organisation has a set of rules and a management committee.Groups can apply online at www.quartetcf.org/apply or request an application pack to be sent by calling 01934 641965.
