The Social Enterprise Support Fund provides essential financial support to help social enterprises during COVID-19. It will help social enterprises to meet additional demands, change the way they work, make their spaces COVID-secure, and manage liquidity during the next six months.

The Social Enterprise Support Fund was established in partnership by The National Lottery Community Fund and five social enterprise support agencies: Big Issue Invest, The Key Fund, Resonance, the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) and UnLtd with support from CAF Venturesome, the Young Foundation and Ashoka.

Thanks to National Lottery players, £18.7 million of National Lottery funding has been committed to the fund to be used to provide grants tosocial enterprise organisations that are best placed to support local, vulnerable communities in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

We have been extremely luck to receive funding from this organisation and are so grateful that as a result, we are able to help even more people. Thank you to each and everyone of you who made this possible!

How to Support Our Service

During these challenging times we are seeing huge demand for support. Whilst we’re not currently doing any community events, because of the pandemic – did you know that a simple donation of just £10 can go a long way to helping another. Covid-19 has changed the world, it demands us to think of others.

On a side note, thank you to all of those organisations, individuals and the UK government for their support of Somewhere House Somerset during the pandemic

Thank You Coronavirus Community Support Fund!

Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, will help us to bring together the community of Sedgemoor with our ‘Sedgemoor Stand Together Project.’ During these challenging times with communities and members of these communities feeling isolated and ‘cut off’ from society, our charity exists in Sedgemoor to work with and support those individuals who have been significantly affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Thanks to the UK Government for making this possible

Thank you Comic Relief Community Fund

Thank you to Comic Relief Community fund for the support with our football team. During these challenging times, the football team continues to meet and play on Monday nights and this is a welcome relief for many who feel increasingly isolated as a result of Covid-19. This generous grant will allow new kit and ongoing pitch space, meaning the games can continue to go ahead!

A big thank you from all of us.

Burnham & Berrow Golf Club Charity Golf Day

A massive thank you to Burnham and Berrow Golf Club for putting on their charity golf day last Thursday and choosing Somewhere House Somerset & The Childrens Hospice Southwest to be their supported charities. Justin, Jan and Wilson (captain, lady captain and senior captain) did a fantastic job, under difficult circumstances with the Covid-19 pandemic, to produce a first class day.

Despite the pandemic, the event was greatly supported including each hole being sponsored, a raffle with generous support from many local businesses and a silent auction that is running until the end of October. £12000 was raised, that is incredible!

The local media were also in attendance and wrote an article about the day. You can see it by clicking here

A great big thank you from all of us, to all of you for organising this event
