Humanitarian Bristol used their grant from round one to buy cultural and religiously appropriate essential food items to create food parcels for people.

The Care Forum and the Voice and Influence Partnership are pleased to announce that the second round of funding from our VIP BME Community Fund is now open for applications.

The funding is available to Bristol-based Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) focussed community groups. Four individual grants of £250 are available to be used to help address needs and issues that are currently impacting or affecting communities. This could be through a one-off piece of work, be part funding for a new project, or support work already being undertaken.

Applications opened on Monday 12 October 2020 and need to be submitted by the closing deadline 9 am Monday 9 November 2020.

You can find out more, download the application information and apply by visiting the VIP BME webpage or by contacting us at or calling 07568 235 598.
