Supporting Small Groups and Community-based Charities

The Quartet Community Foundation aims to bring people together and improve lives by supporting small groups and community-based charities in the West of England (Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire), which are working to improve local communities.

Bath Area Play Project

The Mohn Westlake Foundation’s donation will support three programmes. The Sudden Needs Fund is based in the West of England outside of Bristol, and applications are currently being sought to respond to new and emerging needs in a timely and flexible way. Development is underway on the No Child Goes Hungry programme in Bristol, and a researcher is undertaking primary research to identify which projects to fund to tackle child hunger strategically. Work is also being carried out to build a partnership between local organisations who are working with parents to develop a three-year place-based funding programme in Hartcliffe. The first grants from these three projects will be made in March 2019.
