Got a community project you need to fund? We may be able to help.

Somerset Community Learning Partnership funding is provided by the Skills Funding Agency and especially encourages applications that meet specific needs and gaps that have been identified across Somerset.

We consider funding projects which aim to develop learning opportunities within Somerset's most disadvantaged wards and under-represented groups.

We look for organisation which provide new learning opportunities for residents from any part of the county, who are disadvantaged and least likely to participate, including people in rural areas and people on low income with low skills. Projects with a targeted focus could engage with any of the following groups (or additional ones):

  • People on a low income
  • Rurally isolated individuals
  • Residents living in deprived wards
  • Volunteers
  • Parents / families who are in need of additional support
  • Adults with low levels of English and Maths skills
  • Adults with a below level 2 qualification
  • People with a history of drug / alcohol abuse
  • Ex-offenders
  • People with experience of domestic abuse
  • People who have experience of mental ill health
  • Unemployed people
  • Travellers
  • Homeless people
  • Adults with learning difficulties
  • Adults with disabilities
  • Older isolated learners
  • Migrant workers and individuals from black minority ethnic groups
