Additional Funding for community support group
Sedgemoor District Council has given an additional £15,000 to Spark Somerset, to help them continue their vital work in supporting communities across Sedgemoor, especially during the current situation.
Spark Somerset help support new and established community groups and charities by giving practical help and guidance. They provide information, advice, training and support to the voluntary and community sector across Sedgemoor. They also run the Volunteer Service, inspiring people to get involved and make a difference in their communities. Spark have played a pivotal role with community groups in the current Covid-19 pandemic.
From funding advice to setting up a group with all the legal checks and balances; volunteer management to business planning, they have helped many groups at grassroots level to get funding that they may not have done and helped managed volunteers to get the maximum impact for communities.
Sedgemoor has funded Spark Somerset for a number of years and this additional £15,000 will help Spark to help communities through this difficult time.
