Please note, the projects we support must meet the following criteria:

  • they must be based in Somerset, or have a group/club based in Somerset.

  • they must be for the advantage of children (under 18 years)

  • they must not be for an individual, unless referred by another organisation

  • they must not be from a Community Interest Company limited by shares

  • they must not be a profit making organisation

Once submitted, applications are then put forward to our assessors. Applications tend to be judged on the urgency and need, the amount of difference it can make to the children, and occassionally on the number of children affected. We raise our funds through our second hand shop, and sometimes we must refuse an application due to lack of funds available. We keep applications for 3 months, and, if funds become available in that time, we will contact you and ask if the funding is still required. To get started, simply pick up an application form in store or send us an email requesting a form. We can then email you back with an application form.
